2 Hour Delay Chocolate Orange French Toast

I was trying to not put any obvious 'old bread' recipes here, as I'm sure you know the classics. But... the storm gave us a little extra time one morning this week and so I made this for the wee ones. 



Serves 3 small people and 1 adult, or 2 hungry adults.


4 slices at least day old or more sourdough bread. If not a little dry to the touch, toast a little before soaking

2 eggs

3/4 cup milk

zest of 1/2 orange

chocolate chips


Mix eggs, milk, and zest, pour over sliced bread in a pan just big enough to fit. Turn slices over every 10 or so minutes, but try to not cook for 45 minutes to an hour, until all the liquid has been absorbed by the bread. 

Crank up your skillet to medium high, and place toast on, pouring in any extra liquid- but before you flip, insert chocolate chips into those sourdough holes of the bread, your kids will thank you. Or your friend. Or whomever is receiving this bit of sweet love toast.

Cook each side until golden brown delicious. 

Serve warm with maple syrup or jam, and of course, "snow" of a little powdered sugar.
