Leftover bread = french toast!

In our house waffles are the breakfast bread treat of choice. Every now and then I sneak in a pancake - although they are not Richard's favorite breakfast (he's stuck on scrambled eggs - seriously, he would choose them every morning if I would do it!) And although french toast is not my favorite, I had some leftover cranberry bread and decided to give it a try. I think it was very nice for a change. The other picture was my birthday morning - I had my mom over and cooked her two kinds of waffles- Carrot cake and in the belgium iron cottage cheese- now I have the leftovers in my freezer!

French Toast serves 2

4 slices of good bread (sourdough, french or this cranberry bread!)
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon Grand Marnier
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
sprinkle of salt
about tablespoon butter

Whisk together all the wet ingredients and pour over the bread in a baking dish. Let sit 5 min then turn over the slices and sit another 5. On your griddle or large frying pan melt the butter and then fry the toast for about 3-4 min a side until browned. Serve with a little maple syrup if you like or as is! PS. one time I saw someone use the leftover egg/milk mixture to make scrambled eggs. Sorry, I like the idea of not wasting - but seriously, sweet scrambled eggs. No thanks.
