Polenta Bread French Toast with Brown Sugar Pecans

French toast made from polenta bread and topped with brown sugar toasted pecans. Soooo delish! We fell in love with polenta bread when we were in Vermont last summer! We stopped in at Red Hen Baking Co. to pick up rolls for a bicycle tour we were cooking for and when we got there, we discovered their polenta bread, plus a delicious lunch menu and we were hooked! Thank you Red Hen Baking! 🐓🍞❤️ This French toast is great with or without maple syrup, but heck, Vermont? You have to add the syrup, right?

When you make your Orange Corn Polenta Bread, be sure to double the recipe and make an extra loaf so you can enjoy this amazing French Toast! To make the topping, simply saute toasted pecan bits in a little bit of butter and brown sugar. Heat just until the butter melts, then stir in the brown sugar followed by the chopped, toasted pecans. These also make a great topping for ice cream or frozen yogurt, or even tossed into a salad with sliced pears or fresh grapes.
