Overnight Orange French Toast

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Charmed

This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes. I've been making it for years, and can't remember where I got it. Since all the work is done the night before except for a mere sprinkling of nuts, well, that makes it even better! Great with maple syrup. Time does not including chilling time.

I cut my bread into 1 inch thick slices, then halved them. It worked very well and this dish was pleasing to everyone who I served it to.
