creamy_orange_french_toastOur citrus-fest continues this week, and aren’t you glad it’s being done in a gourmet way? Personally, we can’t get enough of how enticing oranges are for so many of the best breakfast dishes. Take for example this Creamy Orange French Toast recipe from our friends at Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast in Parkdale, Oregon. At their breathtaking property nestled in the majestic foothills of Mt. Hood, with its three comfy guestrooms and access to numerous outdoor activities, innkeeper Mary Pellegrini offers this guest favorite as a must-make for anyone looking for a fresh twist on an old favorite.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 tsp. orange zest
  2. 1 tsp. sugar
  3. 4 oz. softened cream cheese
  4. 3 large eggs
  5. 1 cup milk
  6. fresh juice from a half an orange
  7. zest from an orange
  8. ½ cup maple syrup
  9. 2 Tb. heavy cream
  10. 2 tsp. sugar
  11. ½ tsp. vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl cream together 1/2 tsp. orange zest, 1 tsp. sugar, and cream cheese.
  2. Spread the cream cheese mixture between two slices of bread.
  3. Combine the eggs and 1 cup of milk, and pour onto a cookie sheet.
  4. Lay the sandwiches on the cookie sheet where the milk and egg mixture has been poured, flipping them after about 5 minutes.*
  5. Fry on a hot griddle until golden, about 3-5 minutes on each side.
  6. Meanwhile, combine fresh orange juice, orange zest, maple syrup, heavy cream, 2 tsp. sugar and vanilla extract in a small sauce pot.
  7. Bring to simmer and take off heat.
  8. Serve French toast piping hot topped with the orange syrup and garnished with thinly sliced oranges and a dusting of powdered sugar.
Notes
  1. *The type of bread you are using will determine how long to soak. Dryer bread a little longer than a very moist bread, such as Challah.
  2. Chef Notes: You can adjust this recipe to satisfy dietary needs. I’ve used coconut or almond milk for lactose intolerant guests. A vanilla soy creamer adds flavor. There are some very good non-dairy cream cheese products available as well.
