"From "Mary Ann's Gilligan's Island Cookbook" by Dawn Wells (Mary Ann herself), Ken Beck and Jim Clark. I got this cookbook in a swap and it's got some very humorous quotes and recipe titles. This recipe for French toast is posted for ZWT8 - France. Did you know Mr. Howell once said, "If it weren't for the money, I'd rather be poor.""

"While this was a delicious recipe, with a wonderful texture and easy cleanup, the directions and amounts were way off. The egg/oj mixture was only enough to dip 4 slices of bread in. The baking time was also way off, I peeked at it after 10 minutes and it was already done, possibly a bit overdone. The flavor was amazing - it reminded me of orange danish rolls. I will definitely be making french toast like this again, adjusting the ingredients and cooking time. I lined my pan with foil, which made clean up so much easier than frying the toast in a skillet. It would be great for a holiday breakfast where you need to feed several people all at once."
"Great french toast recipe! Love the addition of the oj and it was great with the cinnamon. I made 1/3 of the recipe, using 6 fairly thick slices of baguette, and in the 20 minute cook time they were perfect for me. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!"
"Can you say yummy?! The flavors of butter, cinnamon, sugar, o.j. all blend together to make this french toast taste amazingly good. The only recommendation I have , is to check it after 10 minutes (or cook at a little lower heat) because mine were very done by then. What a fun recipe. It would work great for guests! The egg/oj mixture was plenty for 8 slices of bread. In fact, I could have made more! Made for ZWT8 France. Merci!"
"Loved the flavor of this french toast and how easy it was to make. I did double the recipe for my family and it turned out just fine. Used thick slices of bread and baked about 30 minutes. Thank You. Made for ZWT8"
