DIRECTIONS

  • Make the mascarpone: In a small bowl, mix the mascarpone, marmalade, grated orange zest, honey and salt.
  • Refrigerate until needed.
  • Make the French toast batter: In a bowl, mix together the orange juice, milk, eggs, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla.
  • Pour into a baking dish or pie plate.
  • Melt a little butter in a large saute pan over medium-low heat.
  • Dip the challah slices quickly into batter on both sides and place 6 slices into the pan (you may need to use two large pans to make all the French toast at one time).
  • Let the infused mascarpone come to room temperature so it's easier to spread.
  • Use a tablespoon or knife to spread some of the cream on each piece of bread in the pan, keeping a 1/2-inch border all around the bread free from the mascarpone.
  • Cover each mascarpone-slathered piece of challah with another slice of bread that has been dipped in the batter.
  • Cook the French toast"sandwiches" until golden brown on one side, carefully flip them over and cook until the second side is golden brown, adding more butter as needed.
  • To serve, place a French toast sandwich on each plate.
  • Enjoy!
