Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe.

  • For the french bread, choose a loaf that is fresh and not too hard.
  • For the walnuts, use freshly chopped nuts for the best flavor.

  • Substitute almond milk for regular milk: Almond milk is a great alternative to regular milk for those who are lactose intolerant or vegan. It can provide a flavorful and creamy alternative to regular milk that is still healthy and nutritious.
  • Substitute coconut sugar for brown sugar: Coconut sugar is a healthier alternative to brown sugar as it has a lower glycemic index and contains some vitamins and minerals. It also provides a slightly different flavor profile that can be a nice addition to the French toast.

Cinnamon-Raisin French Toast Prepare recipe as directed, but substitute 1/2 cup raisins for the walnuts in the topping. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon over the top of the topping before baking.

Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese
RECOMMENDED DISH DESCRIPTION: Roasted asparagus with Parmesan cheese is the perfect accompaniment to the French Toast with Nut Topping. The salty, nutty flavor of the Parmesan cheese complements the sweetness of the French toast and provides a delicious contrast to the crunchy walnuts in the topping. Plus, the asparagus adds a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals to the meal!

Baked Sweet Potatoes
RECOMMENDED DISH DESCRIPTION: Baked sweet potatoes are a great side dish to go with the Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan Cheese. The sweetness of the potatoes is a nice contrast to the salty flavor of the Parmesan cheese, and the creamy texture of the potatoes pairs perfectly with the crunchy walnuts in the French Toast with Nut Topping. Plus, sweet potatoes are packed with nutrients, making this a healthy and delicious meal!
