Room Service French Toast

This french toast recipe is better than Room Service and infused with oranges that will delight your taste buds. The recipe can be made with a fresh baguette or one that is stale, making it a great way to use up fresh bread (and it is way yummier than croutons). It can also be frozen and warmed up on a cookie sheet–making it a make ahead go-to recipe for special occasions or for the everyday.

Top it with your favorite jam (or whatever you have on hand). Apricot jam is my favorite topper. 

The stuff:
1 french baguette, sliced to about 1/4”
1 1/2 cups milk
3 eggs, beaten until frothy
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tablespoon nutmeg
1 orange–the juice, plus zest
Vegetable oil for frying

  1. Heat about 1/4 inch of oil in large skillet on medium-high heat
  2. Combine milk, eggs, sugar, nutmeg, orange juice and zest in dish.
  3. Dip the baguette slices in the egg mixture. Allow excess egg to dip off slices.
  4. Fry baguette slices on both sides until golden brown, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  5. Top with your favorite jam.
