Of all things, video and the ease of preparation, what I really liked is the pecan twist in the dish. I havent ever tried my French toast this way. Hope i can even replace pecans with other nut like walnuts etc, coz unfortunately, my taste-buds do not much compliment pecans! Do let me know, coz this is a real easy recipe for my busy morning schedules. Thanks!
