We have made this French Toast for Christmas brunch for twenty four years! It originally came from the East Coast. If you like your French toast firmer, then cut back on the milk.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream and vanilla. Dip bread slices into egg mixture and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Refrigerate overnight.
The next morning: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a small bowl, combine butter, sugar, maple syrup and pecans. Spoon mixture over bread.
Bake in preheated oven until golden, about 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Eating good breakfast to start the day has become a good habit. It’s a best way to start my day off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me energy to take on the morning. The sweetness is often vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your digestive system and make keep you feeling full longer, and less likely grab a snack out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Making fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is easy . Easy as put the fruit in your refrigerator next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain pan , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
