I made this for breakfast this morning with some multigrain french bread that I found on the day old bread rack at the grocery store. It is really good! This recipe come from the Kitchen Table Friends Blog. I hope they don’t mind me sharing. http://kitchentablefriends.blogspot.com/2012/03/orange-spice-french-toast.html
Orange Spice French Toast Recipe:
1/2 to 1 full day-old baguette
1/3 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or any combination cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves)
zest of 1/2 a small orange
Slice the baguette into 3/4 inch slices. Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, spices and zest. Soak slices of bread in the egg mixture until all is absorbed. Season a skillet lightly with oil, and bring to a medium heat. Lay the bread out in the skillet and cook until the undersides start to brown. Flip the bread slices over and when the other side browns as well remove from heat. Serve with maple syrup.
