Very nice for Sunday Brunch! A great way to use up crusty breads. I use sourdough baguettes from Panera, but you coud use a crusty French or Italian also. This is not your ordinary French toast!

Directions

  1. The night before you are to serve this dish, mix the eggs, milk and Grand Marnier and soak the slices of bread in a single layer overnight.
  2. I use a 9x13 pan to do this and then transfer everything to a 9" cake pan in the morning so I can create layers.
  3. The next morning melt the butter in a small bowl, add the orange juice concentrate, brown sugar and pecans, mix well.
  4. Spray the bottom of a 9" round cake pan with nonstick spray.
  5. Spread about 1/3 of the orange mixture on the bottom of the pan, now line the pan with a layer of the soaked bread.
  6. Spread a bit of the orange mixture on each slice of bread and then add another layer of bread, staggering it so the pieces overlap.
  7. Spread the remaining orange mixture over the top and bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes at 375F.
  8. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve by cutting into slices.
