  4. Dip each slice of brioche into the egg mixture, making sure both sides are well coated. 
  5. Place brioche slices into skillet and cook until the undersides are golden brown, about 3 minutes.
  6. Flip, and continue cooking on the other side until equally golden brown, about another 3 to 4 minutes.
  7. Continue with all french toast, adding more butter to the pan as needed. 
  8. Serve warm, with butter pecan syrup!

For the Butter Pecan Syrup:

  3. Add in the cinnamon, heavy cream, and salt and whisk to combine.
  4. Add in the pecans and, using a rubber spatula, fold them into the liquid mixture until they're completely coated. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and bourbon.
