This is simply the best french toast i've ever tried. The honey and orange flavors are delicious!
My DH and both agree that french toast prepared the traditional way is better. This had a very orangy flavor. I missed the cinnamon and the cream cheese in stuffed french toast, but it was a nice change.
Just as I thought it would be, this is a great recipe. I love the Barefoot Contessa show and watch it whenever I can. I served this with sweetened fresh strawberries on top and sprinkled with powdered sugar. The Challah bread is so good made as French toast. What a breakfast! Thanks for posting CL.
No- I have not heard of this recipe from here I heard about it from the actual book itself, Barefoot Contessa Family Style. She has three books, all of which are wonderful. The challah is a must, it is an egg bread and delicious. The orange zest adds just the right punch. This has been a family favorite. The challah can be frozen and defrosted in the microwave, so you can always have the ingredients on hand. The staler the bread, the better for french toast. I was actually planning on making it this weekend when I came across it here.
