Weekend Cooking: Praline Toast from "4 Ingredients" by Kim McCosker and Racael Bermingham

It's the weekend, and my oldest son and his girlfriend are coming for a visit, so I dug around to see what goodies I could fix while they were here.

I recently got a cool cookbook to review called "4 Ingredients" by Australian authors Kim McCosker and Rachael Bermingham and decided to see what I could find there.  Lo and behold - it's filled with great, simple recipes that truly take just four ingredients.   (Thankfully, the girls have Americanized their famous "Aussie" recipes - so no Vegemite sandwiches here!)

I decided we'd give this one a try for Sunday morning breakfast!  Doesn't it look yummy!

Praline Toast

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter softened
1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
8 slices of bread

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together butter, pecans, and sugar. Spread on bread slices and bake on a baking sheet until brown and bubbling.  Simple, simple!

I wonder if it is also suitable for European readers because books that truly use 4 ingredients, now that are keepers!

Love simple recipes. I would get that book for that toast recipe alone, looks amazing!

So glad you joined in! Can't wait for more of your posts. This looks easy and yummy. I might have to try it for July 4 breakfast.

Have you seen any video's of the 4 Ingredients girls? They sound very Aussie! Can't make this one in my house due to a nut allergy.

This Aussie is very glad that there is no Vegemite sandwiches in this cookbook - can't stand the stuff.
