Remember when I posted my favorite baked french toast recipe? This one is almost as good.
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
8 French bread slices, cut 1 inch thick
1/4 cup melted butter
Orange Apple Syrup:
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 medium apple, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1 orange, peeled and cut into sections
In a medium bowl, whisk together all French toast ingredients except bread and butter. Dip both sides of French bread in mixture and place in buttered 13x9 inch pan. Pour remaining mixture over bread. Refridgerate overnight. Before baking, drizzle melted butter over bread. Bake at 400 until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, in large skillet combine 3/4 cup orange juice and brown sugar; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture is bubbly. Add apple, cinnamon and ginger. Continue cooking until apple slices are tender; add orange segments. Serve over French toast. Serves 4.
