Orange French Toast With Honey Butter Topping
Well it’s Good Friday in the religious sense but not as far as the weather is concerned! We are being plummeted with rain with lots more coming and we are back to the lakes in the yard and the rivers running through! About 2 inches of rain so far on top of water logged ground does not make for a new driveway being put in any time soon, even the dog doesn’t want to go out! Anyone got a canoe for sale? So glad I did my shopping early for Easter!!!
This French Toast recipe would make an excellent way to start off your Easter morning and the great part is that it can be made the day before and frozen so when you get home from Church or after the big Easter Egg Hunt, all you have to do is take it out of the freezer and cook it off! We had ours with ham but if you’re having ham for Sunday dinner, you might want to cook off some breakfast sausage or bacon!

|Orange French Toast With Honey Butter Topping||
- French Toast
- 2 eggs at room temperature and slightly beaten
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
- 1 heaping tablespoon of orange zest
- 1 tbsp sugar (I did not use as the oranges were very sweet)
- ¼ teas salt
- 12 slices French bread about ½-inch thick
- 6 tbsp melted butter plus extra for skillet
- Honey Butter
- ½ cup butter
- 4 tbsp fresh honey
- 3 tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
- Whisk the eggs with the cornstarch to combine.
- Add the orange juice, sugar (if needed) and the salt.
- Dip bread into mixture, coating both sides.
- At this point you can freeze them for later by placing them on a cookie sheet and freezing until firm; individually wrap each piece in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag and return to the freezer.
- To cook, heat electric skillet to 350 degrees or cook in an iron skillet over medium heat; melt butter over surface before adding toast.
- Melt the 6 tablespoons of butter in the microwave in a glass container.
- Place toast on skillet and drizzle the melted butter over the top; fry until nicely browned on each side.
- For the honey butter, again melt butter in the microwave with the honey; stir in the orange juice and pour over cooked French Toast.
Kenny and I really like this for a change of pace, of course, he still had to top his off with his sugar cane syrup which left me with all the honey butter,,,,,,,,,YES! Hope you enjoy…..
