Overnight Orange French Toast

YUM! Thank you Jaime for sending me this recipe. What a great way to kick off our 4th of July! Blueberry French Toast is still my favorite but this recipe is a close second.

4 eggs
½ cup half and half
⅓ cup orange juice
3 Tbsp orange flavored liqueur or orange juice
2 Tbsp sugar
¼ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp salt
16 slices French bread, cut thick (I used Challah)

Orange Syrup
½ cup butter
⅓ cup sugar
⅓ cup frozen (thawed) orange juice concentrate

Beat eggs, half and half, orange juice, liqueur, sugar, vanilla, and salt in small bowl with fork. Dip bread into egg mixture, soaking thoroughly; place in ungreased pan. Pour any remaining sauce over bread. Cover loosely and refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours, but no longer than 24.

Make orange syrup; melt butter in saucepan. Add sugar and orange juice concentrate, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Beat with wire whisk until thick and shiny.

Heat griddle to 375 degrees; grease with butter. Cook bread 4 to 5 minutes per side.
