The weekend is here and Christmas is next week, ah! I’m so excited to share this mouth watering holiday brunch recipe! It’s super easy, super impressive, and of course-super delicious.

WHAT IS PRALINE?
Praline is generally known as a mixture made of nuts, sugar and cream. In this recipe, praline is made into a buttery, sugary, spiced topping that is loaded with pecans.
WHY IS MY FRENCH TOAST SOGGY?
This usually happens when you have too much dairy in the ingredients. The egg will not cook all the way through which will cause your french toast to be soggy.
CAN I REHEAT MY BAKED FRENCH TOAST?
Yes! It can be heated in the oven at 325 degrees for about 30 minutes. You can also reheat in the air fryer.
