Orange French Toast

I'd thought I'd get you ready for the weekend with a really yummy french toast recipe. We had this for dinner last night, with scrambled eggs and cheese to assuage my guilt for serving so many carbs. I was going to cut up some pineapple but that seemed like a lot of work at the end of a long day. So I didn't.We'll eat extra fruit tomorrow to make up for it.

You'll need these guys:
Admit it. You get giddy inside when you see the Manager Special sticker on something that doesn't contain offensive ingredients.
 Eggs, orange juice, vanilla, and some bread. And the cinnamon. Again and again!

 Whisk the eggs, OJ, vanilla, and cinnamon together. I used 5 eggs for 4 people last night, I like really egg-y french toast. Again...makes me feel like we're getting more protein. It's all about the placebo.

Dip the bread in the egg/OJ mixture and cook on a med-hot griddle with butter. The real stuff. Accept no substitutes. 

 Serve with plenty of maple syrup. And more butter.

That's nice, but where is the bacon?
Don't you dare cut my French Toast into small, manageable bites! I will freak the heck out. I wanted it cut in STRIPS! I wanted to DIP it in the syrup! With my hands!

 So...let's review:
Eggs and OJ whisked together+
Splash of vanilla+
Goodly amount of cinnamon+

Once, I made this with Challah bread (I am a sucker for that manager special sticker) and it was wow. Serve this to your fam this weekend and be their hero.


  1. Who the heck is that boy in the picture? And where did you put Dominic?

  2. Yum!! I've never tried it with OJ before!!

  3. mmmmmm. that looks amazing! cannot wait to make some. For some sick reason, I married someone who doesn't believe in the beauty of french toast. Maybe the orange will be just what he needs to convert.

  4. Dear Anne,
    We are gluten free and you just crushed my soul.
    With resentment,
