Kylee's Notes 

  • Use a vanilla infused maple syrup, if you can find one. If not, add 1 tsp vanilla extract to the egg mixture.
  • If you can find one, a cinnamon infused maple syrup really dials up the cinnamon flavor
  • Switch out the white bread for whole wheat!
  • Use walnuts instead of pecans (if that's what you have)
  • Make a double batch. Trust me.
