Now that Labor Day is behind us, I am ready to dive into ALL THE FALL THINGS!  Chillier weather, crispy leaves, warm toned colors, and of course, the food. One of the best things for me this time of year are the fall foods. Apples and pumpkins and pears, oh my! There's a few pear trees on public property a few blocks from my house that nobody seems to know about. Or if they do, they don't take advantage because we usually find quite a few on the ground before we get there. Deer and bunny food it turns into, I suppose. Allison and I like to go pick pears from the trees once a year then come home and think of all of the yummy goodies we're going to make with our bounty. This week, as it seems that the second wave of kids are headed back to school, I thought I would share a fantastic breakfast recipe to get the kids motivated to start their day off right. This Pear and Pecan French Toast, a Golden Blossom Honey recipe, is the most perfect seasonal breakfast boasting of all the goodness of autumn in every bite. 
 

In the summertime, Jason makes me strawberry and cream cheese french toast often, which is really good, but I'd take this recipe over that any day of the week. This is a fairly quick recipe to toss together, especially if your bread is already sliced straight from the bakery. If you're looking to make even quicker work of this dish for busy school mornings, slice and peel the pears the night before, toss them in a little lemon juice, then refrigerate overnight.  You can even get the bag of chopped pecans to save time on that step as well. The topping can work on other dishes too, from pancakes, to oatmeal, to ice cream, and it's out of this world delish, I wouldn't judge you for eating it all before it even has the chance to top another food. If I ask you to save one recipe to try this fall, it has to be this one. I promise, you're going to love it!

  1. Interchangeable topping is a win indeed. At least the deer and bunnies get some food from not everyone knowing about the trees, or caring enough to get out and get some.

    1. Hopefully they eat the pears and stay out of my garden. I have zucchini that's about to be picked and I'm worried they'll get to it before I do!

  2. I haven’t had French toast since I was a kid! We only ever got maple syrup as a topping.

    1. I always preferred pancakes when I was a kid, but now I'd take French toast over pancakes in my adult years.

  3. I just made French toast for lunch today, but savoury, with pea soup. Why does yours look like it was just toasted in a pan and not dipped in eggs?
    Love me pears!

    1. What do you mean with pea soup? Like as a side dish to the toast or you put the French toast in the soup?

      Delete
    2. I first ate the pea soup and then some French toast: bread dipped in whipped eggs and a bit of vegeta (I do not use milk at all).

    3. You know I love me some Vegeta, but I actually don't think I'd like it on French toast. However, you have me wanting some pea soup now. Yesterday was the first day of fall, so it's officially soup season for me. Think I'll make me some pea soup tonight to celebrate!

  4. What a cool way to use the pears. We have a public park with a mango tree close to us that we visit from time to time. I'd rather it have a pear tree!

    1. I like mangoes, but I agree, I'd rather have a pear tree too.

  5. I haven't had French toast in ages! This sounds like a lovely way to have it. Pears are so overlooked!

  8. Oh yum, I am ALL IN on this one! My favorite is when French toast is made with cinnamon raisin bread.
