Orange French Toast

Oranges in the backyard of our SoCal vacation rental inspired this easy breakfast. While fresh juice helps, so does good crusty day-old bread. Goes well with a mimosa poolside too! 🙂

Orange French Toast

  • 2lb crusty Italian bread, sliced into 1″ thick pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Zest and juice of one orange
  • 1/4c sugar

Mix ingredients and coat bread, soak bread for approximately 30 min. (Depending on how big the loaf or how dry the bread, you’ll need to adjust milk/egg ratio). The bread should be wet but not soggy. Saute in butter 2-3 min per side. Serve with fruit, butter and syrup.
