Baked French Toast

Plated French Toast made by Alabama bed and breakfast
  • 5 eggs
  • 2/3’s cup Orange Juice
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 of a 16oz loaf Italian Bread – cut into 1 inch slices
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • pecan halves / may substitute pieces
  • Using a wire whisk beat together the first 6 ingredients
  • Place the bread in a casserole that just fits the slices. Pour the mixture over the bread slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight turning once.
  • In a separate pan melt butter to form a thin layer in the bottom (approx. ½ stick). Arrange soaked slices on top of the layer of butter and top with pecans.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or just until  the bread “puff’s up”
