4 servings

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


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 8 slices day-old French bread (1 inch thick)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract


  1. In a bowl, beat eggs. Beat in the milk, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Soak the slices of bread for 30 seconds on each side. Cook on a hot greased griddle until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the orange juice, corn syrup, sugar, butter and orange zest. Bring to a boil and boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in extract. Serve with French toast.
