Of all the things I make, this is my eldest daughter's favorite. Great for winter weekend mornings or snow days.

Ingredients

1/3 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 c
orange juice, fresh
1 Tbsp
butter, melted
1 large
french bread, day old
1 1/2 c
half and half
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/8 tsp
salt
32 oz

Step-By-Step

1Spray 13x9 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle half of the brown sugar on bottom of pan.
2Cube french bread and lay in pan.
3Blend eggs, half & half, 1/2 cup orange juice, salt, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour over bread
4Sprinkle remaining brown sugar over the top; cover and refrigerate overnight. Don't worry, the bread will soak up all that egg mixture!
5The next morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees, uncover and bake for 30-40 minutes. Top will be firm to touch when done.
6Put strawberries and remaining orange juice in saucepan, bring to boil and simmer until slightly thickened.
7Slice it up, put strawberries and whipped topping on top and enjoy!
