Thick slices of classic French toast combine with a citrusy syrup for a delicious brunch treat that can't be beat! Don't confine the concoction to only special occasions, though, say Jess & Anne Foust of Bluefield, West Virginia. "This dish is easy enough to serve anytime, even for a family breakfast," they note.—Jesse & Anne Foust, Bluefield, West Virginia
