Grand Marnier French Toast

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Bev I Am

I found this recipe in Epicurious Magazine. Be sure to serve with orange slices and a side of bacon or fried ham to complete your meal. This recipe can be prepared the night before to make your morning preparation a little easier.

I'm in agreement with Charlotte J! This is a 10-star recipe!!! I used the Grand Marnier and let these stand for about 4 hours. The subtle taste of the Grand Marnier combined with the orange 'bits' are a total delight. This is now my favorite French Toast recipe ever, and I can't wait to serve this to guests. Thanks Bev!!
