Parker County Peach French Toast

People come from all over Texas – and elsewhere – when the sweet, juicy peaches of Parker County are in season. If you can’t get your hands on the real deal, substitute frozen peaches.


  • 8 slices Mrs Baird’s® Large White bread
  • Caramelized Parker County peaches (recipe follows)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 8 tablespoons butter, divided
  • Optional toppings:
  • Honey Greek yogurt
  • Toasted pecans
  • Butter
  • Powdered sugar
  • Caramelized Parker County Peaches
  • 2 fresh Parker County peaches, sliced, or 1 bag frozen peaches
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  1. To prepare the peaches, combine brown sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Gently fold in peaches.
  2. In large skillet melt 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat, add in peach mixture and saute for 5-7 minutes until peaches are warm and start to brown. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and salt. Add milk and stir to combine.
