This is a better alternative to those boxes of frozen french toast that you buy in the store... you make these yourself!
** Great freezer recipe! Double or triple this recipe to have extra breakfasts on hand and ready to heat & serve.

    eggs, beaten well

How to Make Orange French Toast

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except bread. Blend well.
  2. Dip both sides of each bread slice in egg mixture. Let set a minute to soak up some egg. Be sure to whisk the egg mixture periodically to keep the cinnamon mixed in.
  3. Place bread slices on hot non-stick griddle. Cook until both sides are a light golden brown.
  4. Remove from griddle. Dust with a little powdered sugar. Serve with warmed maple syrup.
  5. TO FREEZE: When cooled, wrap each slice in wax paper, and then stack a meal's worth in a large freezer bag. (Make sure you remove as much air as possible from the freezer bag before freezing)
  6. Store in your freezer for up to 3 months.
  7. To Thaw & Serve: Remove from freezer, unwrap & place on a plate.
  8. Heat for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes in the microwave, or until heated through.
  9. Top with maple syrup & enjoy!
