Although this is really a breakfast/brunch dish, my daughters occasionally beg to have this for supper. Occasionally I indulge them.

    Excellent! I've made similar dishes, but this is my favorite. Honey adds so much flavor especially compared to corn syrup. I didn't have Grand Marnier so had to settle for Triple Sec. The honey overpowered any orange flavor, which you'd expect with only 1t. Half and half makes this creamy and decadent. You could use milk, but it wouldn't have the same wonderful result. Will definitely make this again! Thanks for sharing!

    OUTSTANDING! So, easy! . Delicious. Christmas morning, for over 20 yrs, I always make an egg casserole. Last year also made this dish. My now college age kids told me just to make this again. This is a new traditional holiday breakfast. Will be making for Easter per requests. Thanks for sharing!

    We made this as part of a breakfast tailgate for a football game. We prepped it the night before in chafing pans, threw it in the oven when we woke up, and put them on the grill to keep it warm at the tailgate. The French toast was great, everyone loved it.

    This gets 10 stars as far as I'm concerned!! Made exactly as written and I'd never change a thing. We only got 6 servings however. Thanks for sharing!

    My family uses a similar recipe, but with corn syrup and without the orange- we call it Skier's Toast. It is delish. I look forward to trying it with an orange flavor.
