French toast with candied pecans!
Breakfast is my very favorite meal to cook. I'm just a girl with a sweet tooth!
Ingredients for candied pecans:
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1 lb. of pecan halves
1 cup of white sugar
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Grease baking sheet.
In a mixing bowl, whip egg white and water until frothy. In a separate bowl mix sugar salt and cinnamon.
Add pecans to egg whites and coat evenly. Remove the nuts and toss in sugar mixture. Spread nuts out on baking sheet and bake for one hour stirring every 15 minutes.
Ingredients for toast:
2 egg whites
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
8 slices of texas toast
Beat egg and egg whites till frothy and add milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix. Dip bread in mixture and cook on griddle. About 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Sprinkle with pecan, berries and most importantly 100% pure maple or fruit juice syrup. It makes all the difference. I recommend this or this one. Makes all the difference.
