    JennyLynn99's Note:

    Delicious baked french toast sprinkled with pecans and (optional) orange zest. It is a morning meal masterpiece. I got this recipe from a book called "A Taste of Tradition - A Collection of Recipes by Port Norris School Alumni and Friends". My boyfriend's grandmother graduated from Port Norrris in 1930 and contributed to the book although this recipe is not hers. It is from Betty Sockwell Dixon and it is wonderful! (As a side note, I usually use Italian bread that is leftover from dinner within the last few days. It can be a little crispy, because it is going to soak in liquid.) Also, I included refrigeration time in prep time.

      This was DELICIOUS !! I just loved the orange flavor and I included the pecans, toasted and fresh orange peel. Served with powdered sugar and pure maple syrup. I only made 1/2 recipe and it disappeared immediately ~ should have made the whole thing! Thanks for posting ~ made for Spring PAC 2010!

      Followed your recipe right on down, including the orange zest (which I do enjoy using) & we had a most satisfying & tasty French toast breakfast! This is definitely a recipe I'll be making again ~ Thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef] Want to know more about PAC? Click here =
