New Orleans French Toast

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

The grated orange peel is the secret in this recipe. This is a definite "make-again" recipe in my book. Great flavors and no more effort than any french toast. Serve with maple syrup or top with fresh orange sections tossed with sugar and orange liqueur. Recipe courtesy of Betty Crocker's Old-Fashioned Cookbook.

I didn't have oranges so I used lemon peel which was great. It gave a great taste of lemon. Thanks AmyZoe :) Made for Cookbook tag game
