  • To prepare French Toast: In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Dip bread slices into egg mixture, turning to coat both sides (let soak in egg mixture about 1 minute per side).

  • Coat an unheated large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray. Preheat over medium heat. Place bread on hot skillet or griddle; cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Divide bread slices among four serving plates. Spoon on Maple-Apple Topping and sprinkle with pecans.
