A quick, easy, delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  This is such a light tasting and refreshing twist on french toast.  The syrup is sooo yummy.  I saw this in a Taste of Home magazine a while back, tweaked it a bit, and here are the results!


Orange Syrup:

1/2 cup orange juice

1/3 cup corn syrup

1/8 cup sugar

1 T salted butter

3/4 tsp orange extract

To make the syrup:  Combine all ingredients except the orange extract in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Stirring constantly, boil for 2 – 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and add the orange extract.  Syrup will bubble slightly as you stir it in.  Note this is more of a sauce than a syrup.  Will be runny, not thick!  Reheat syrup just before serving.

French Toast:

4 eggs

1 cup milk

1 T sugar

pinch of salt

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

12 slices french bread – approx 3/4″ thick

In a medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together.  Dip bread into egg mixture, allowing to soak 15 – 20 seconds on each side.  Cook slices on a high heat griddle until golden brown on both sides, flipping only once.  Keep warm on a hot sheet pan in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.
