To toast pecans, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spread pecans in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet and bake, stirring occasionally, until they are fragrant and toasted, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, coarsely chop, and reserve.
This is a very different way to prepare french toast. It comes out very much like sticky buns, and is delicious.
