Serve up a smile for breakfast, brunch or breakfast for dinner with this phenomenal Buttery Pecan French Toast! It’ll have everyone begging for more!
We serve breakfast for dinner often at our house. I love that it’s so easy, the cleanup is minimal and the kids go crazy for it every time! One of our favorites is definitely French toast. I enjoy finding ways to “mix it up”, although it’s hard to beat the classic, basic French toast!
One way we do that is by adding in cinnamon and lots of it! This time I thought it would be so tasty to coat the French toast in crunchy pecans too! We drizzled it in caramel syrup to send the flavor up ten notches! And then of course it wouldn’t be complete without some New Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread! The results are nothing short of incredible!
Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread is new and completely amazing! I seriously don’t know how I lived without it for so long! It’s made with real butter for that delectable buttery taste when added to a stack of French toast, pancakes, fried or scrambled eggs, waffles, corn on the cob…the sky’s the limit! The squeezable bottle keeps the contents clean and crumb-free, which is a huge plus!
It easily goes with you on picnics, outings, and gatherings!
I picked up everything I needed to make today’s yummy recipe at my local Walmart.

I’m typically pretty good about planning meals for the week and making a grocery list on Sunday, but during the summer, all of that goes out the window! Things are much less structured and I lose the will to cook. I blame it on the heat. 🙂
So, I rely on easy meals like French toast, that I know the whole family will love and that don’t require much effort. The fewer steps, the better!
The kids love to help out in the kitchen with meal prep, especially when it comes to the finishing touches! New Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread is so convenient and easy for small hands to squeeze!
It made our French toast night much less messy and lots more fun! Just grab it from the fridge, then put it over veggies, pasta, toast…you name it!
Since we’re all about simple at our house and we rarely have time to make French toast in the morning, we had it for dinner, but this time with a few yummy additions! Here’s how to make it this incredible Buttery Pecan French Toast!
Heat your griddle. Keep the heat to low so the pecans won’t burn. Grease your griddle so nothing sticks.
Prepare your egg mixture. Beat the eggs with a fork, then beat in the milk, vanilla and cinnamon with a fork. You’ll want to put it in a shallow, wide bowl for ease in dipping. In another bowl, spread out the chopped pecans.
Press the bread into the pecans so they embed into it. Do this to both sides. Now place them on the griddle and let one side cook (mine took about 4 minutes), then flip and let the other side cook for about the same amount of time until done.
Buttery Pecan French Toast
- 5 large eggs
- 1/4 c. milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon
- 3 c. chopped pecans finely chopped
- Texas Toast or thick bread
- Caramel Syrup
- Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread

- Heat griddle over stove top on medium heat. Grease it to prevent the toast from sticking.
- In a shallow bowl, beat eggs with a fork. Beat in milk, vanilla and cinnamon with the fork. In a separate bowl, spread out chopped pecans.
- Dip both sides of the bread in the egg mixture, then transfer it to the pecan bowl and press each side of the bread into the pecans so they coat it.
- Place bread on griddle and allow it to cook on one side until done, or about 4 minutes, then flip and allow the other side to cook for about the same amount of time until done. Keep the heat on low and let it cook slowly so the pecans won't burn.
- Serve topped with caramel syrup and Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread and fresh fruit.
Now finish them off with some caramel syrup, fresh strawberries and some New Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread! We’re going to be making this French toast often! The crunchy pecans with the caramel syrup and soft squeeze spread is absolutely heavenly!
Does your family love to have breakfast for dinner? I hope you enjoy this!
