Tasty Tuesday ~~ Get Your Drool Bibs On!

Why is it when you decide to get into a healthier mode, you see yummy food everywhere? (Yeah, I joined the health club and am eating right, cutting down on coffee, adding water, blah blah blah bleh!) :D

Oh well, if I can't eat it, at least I can dream and drool over it while I munch my yogurt, salad or granola bar!

Today's selection comes from the 2010 issue of Louisiana Life Travel magazine -- a publication just loaded with recipes and destinations for every taste. Enjoy...

Stuffed French Toast with Pecans

6 slices French bread, cut 1-inch thick
3/4 cup apricot preserves (can probably substitute your fav)
6 T. cream cheese
6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 T. all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Powdered sugar
Maple syrup

Cut each bread slice to 1/2 inch of the edge. Fill each with 2 T. of jam and 1 T. of cream cheese. Whisk eggs, milk & flour in a medium bowl to blend. Stir together pecans, sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, and brush with oil. Dip each bread slice into egg mixture and then into pecan mixture, coating completely. Cook until golden, brushing skillet with oil between batches. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, divide among plates, and pass the syrup. Great with crispy bacon.
Serves 6.

Congrats for joining the health club, sha! It happens to the best of us, sooner or later. But who could resist that divine French toast?! I am drooling, for sure! YUMMM!

You know,there are some things that you almost don't have to eat, because you can taste them just by reading the recipe. Okay, I did say "almost". Actually, I would love to run right out to the kitchen and whip up a batch of this French toast - if only I had the French bread, cream cheese, apricot jam, pecans, and maple syrup. Oh, and the powdered sugar. Sigh. Maybe I'll eat a banana.
