A Little "Feel Good" Food

While we are trapped inside our snow castles, I found an amazing recipe in Sweet Paul Magazine that I had to share with y'all! It's Rich. It's Naughty. It's Decadent. And with all this snow and cold weather, it's....forgivable.

Well, what is it?

Amaretto-Baked French Toast with Pecans (cue the hallelujah choir!)

*Cooking in your pj's is best for this recipe*

Serves 4
3 Eggs
1 Cup of milk
3 Tbs of sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Tbs Amaretto (cue the choir again, pls)
1 Loaf brioche bread, cut into 1/2" cubes
1 Tbs butter (for greasing baking dish)
1/2 Cup of Pecans
Maple Syrup, to serve

Preheat Oven to 350F
In a large bowl beat eggs, milk, sugar & amaretto
Add Brioche cubes and let mixture stand (soak) for 5 minutes
Spoon into a 9" x 12" well greased baking dish,
Sprinkle with pecans
Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until golden
Pour maple syrup over bread and serve

Look outside, stick your tongue out and enjoy! :o)
