Take our classic pein paurdue (lost bread aka French Toast), add a couple ingredients and you have another great addition to your recipe collection. This is a wonderful breakfast treat.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 8 bread slices 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • ORANGE SYRUP
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup orange juice

Directions

Step 1

In a medium glass bowl, beat together eggs, juice, milk, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. In a glass casserole dish, arrange bread in a single layer, top with egg mixture. Refrigerate two hours. Note you are not cooking the bread in this dish.

Step 2

Melt butter in a 10x15x2 inch pan and arrange the bread on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with pecans and bake 10 minutes more.

Step 3

Orange syrup: Combine the 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup orange juice. Combine in a medium saucepan and cook over low heat - do not boil. Cool for 10 minutes and serve warm.

Step 4

Variation: Around Christmas, instead of using milk, I substituted eggnog and omitted the nutmeg. The family loved it!
