That's good to know, I may make the french toast for a New Years breakfast. I am so stuck on the "ultimate Breakfast Casserole"

Pattico if I find a recipe needing only 2 or three tablespoons I usually buy the smallest container and if I am not going to whip up the rest for a shortcake or sundaes I freeze it. In two tbsp or three as the recipe calls for, I put it in an ice cube tray until frozen and pop them all in a small airtight plastic container. Then I take out as much as I need and will let it thaw in the fridge, only takes a little while and whisk it as it looks separated a bit, but there is no difference in the flavor or texture when used in a recipe.(or else keep making that recipe you posted in multiple batches until it is gone cause it looks yummy!!!)

where do the chopped pecans go...on top of the graham crackers or on top of the caramel sauce?

Glenda, it was so kind of you to respond, especially when your son was in surgery. I'm glad it went well!

Joann, you won't be sorry if you make the french toast. I forgot to mention that I increased the cinnamon to a full tablespoon. I'm keeping the Ultimate Breakfast Casserole recipe for Easter. Thank you for it!

Pattico, thanks for sharing your pecan bar recipe. They look downright dangerous!
