Top Review by Sydney Mike

Made for PAC, Spring 07 ~ What a great way to make French toast! I like the combination of flavors here, & I doubled the amount of orange zest in the bread coating, then added a bit of zest on top of everything else at the end! It's not something I'd want to make every day or even every week, but it IS a nice change of pace, especially when you're interested in a simple but elegant breakfast! Thanks for the great recipe!
