Prepare Pistachio Syrup

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread pistachios on a baking sheet and toast for 10 minutes.

  3. Allow syrup to cool. Puree and set aside.

For the French Toast

  1. Whisk together eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract to form a batter.

  2. Spread a tablespoon of paste over each slice of bread and top with an additional piece of bread. Dip sandwich in batter until soaked through.

  3. Heat oil in a skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add pieces of bread and cook on both sides until golden brown. Remove and allow to drain on paper towels.
