What kind of pan can I use to make French Toast Breakfast Casserole?

I use a 2 tier pan from Amazon and I LOVE it. However you can also use a springform pan. Make sure to use a trivet so you remove the pan easily when done. A foil sling also works to remove the pan if your trivet doesn’t have handles.

Of course you can! This recipe will work the same for the Oven or the Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker. Follow the steps and place in a greased 8×8 glass baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes. It’s delish

What Bread is best for French Toast Breakfast?

For this recipe I prefer to use French Bread. However, you could also use cubed slices of Texas Toast if you prefer. And I might have even tried cubed pieces of Cinnaburst breast from my local bakery too.

Pecans are those secret ingredients that Adults love and kids haven’t figured out are delicious. I’m serious. It’s like Thanksgiving and Pecan Pie which is never chosen by the kids and always LOVED by adults. If you love Pecans like I do, then PLEASE give try Grandpa’s FAVORITE Pecan Pie Recipe. Quick and easy and Oh so good!

Can I freeze Pecans?

Actually you can freeze most all nuts. I keep my nuts in the freezer so they stay fresh. Then I pull them out a few minutes before I need them and let them sit on the counter. I always have fresh nuts for recipes.

Which Syrup is best?

A traditional Maple Syrup is nice. A Buttermilk syrup is delicious too. You can also try this fun recipe from a fellow blogger it’s Vanilla Bubble Syrup and pairs nicely with this Pecan French Toast Recipe.
