      I made this for my visiting parents for a nice brunch. I used two types of bread, one a whole-grain white and the other a pre-sliced French sandwich bread. I preferred the French bread as it browned more and crisped up a bit more than the white bread. The orange syrup was divine. Don't expect a thick syrup, though, it is pretty thin in consistency but the flavor is great. I will make this again using all French bread and will add a bit more nutmeg to give it a boost. Thanks for a very nice recipe!

      This toast was really good! I wanted to do something different with the sauce though, so I added a bit more butter and some maple syrup. OMG!!!! The result was mouth watering, makes-your-cheeks-hurt, deliciousness!

      I halved the recipe for 2 of us, used wheat sandwich bread & debated the orange syrup part of the recipe while the French toast chilled. I wanted to be faithful to the recipe & knew I was going to photograph it, but also felt (for us at least) the syrup would be overkill. I finally opted not to make it. The toast puffed up some & browned nicely in the exact cooking time specified. What I like best about this dish is what made my choice a good one. It is lightly sweet, not overpoweringly sweet as many of its genre are. I served it w/bacon & tasted it several ways, i.e. plain (good), w/maple syrup (good), lightly buttered (very good), lightly buttered & dusted w/powdered sugar (Special!). The orange flavour was just right & the nutmeg a nice addition. I do not feel the pecans added anything except to the presentation. This is a lovely company-worthy dish, easy to fix & tastes great. Thx for sharing it w/us.
