Orange French Toast from the Freezer

I find it's easier in the morning if I have something easy to make for breakfast. These take all of 5 minutes to assemble and about 10 minutes to cook right out of the freezer. (Great served with orange syrup)

This smells so good when cooking! I added the zest of the orange, as the other reviewer mentioned, to add even more of that citrus flavor. My slices of French bread were about 5 inches by 3 inches, 3/4 inch thick, and there was only enough liquid for six slices. Maybe I let them soak up too much? I will try this recipe again for sure!

I made this this morning for breakfast. No way is this enough fo 12 pieces! (Maybe my pieces of bread were a lot bigger?) Mine made about 6 pieces. Enough for us for breakfast, but not enough to freeze. Darn! I'll have to make more! :) I used 1/2 c milk and 1/2 c orange juice b/c I really like the custardy taste of French toast. I also added the zest of about 1/2 an orange. This is really yummy. Thanks for sharing. :)
