"She was so wild that when she made French toast, she got her tongue caught in the toaster." -Rodney Dangerfield, Comedian

The refrigerator light goes on...

French Toast itself isn't all that bad for you and a great treat for Sunday morning brunch.  Enriched sauces, such as Orange Honey, can add different flavors to your pancakes or French toast.

This recipe can be easily be multiplied, but leftover French Toast is not very good. This batter doesn't keep well.

healthy Orange French Toast recipe from Dr. Gourmet


French Toast

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp. Grand Marnier orange liqueur
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. 2% milk
  • 1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp. orange zest
  • 4 slices sourdough bread
  • 2 tsp. (per serving) unsalted butter

Orange Honey

  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 tsp. Grand Marnier orange liqueur

Place the egg, Grand Marnier, sugar, milk, vanilla extract, orange juice, and orange peel in a medium mixing bowl. 

Whisk until well blended. 

Heat a non-stick griddle over medium-high heat. 

When the griddle is hot enough that a few drops of water will dance on the surface, reduce the heat to medium and place 4 slices of bread into the batter. 

Gently dunk and turn the bread until it is well coated and slightly soaked. 

Place the 4 slices of soaked bread on the griddle and cook for about 3 – 4 minutes.  Turn and cook on the other side. 

Cook, turning occasionally, until both sides are golden brown. 

Depending on your stove or griddle you may need to reduce the heat slightly. 

Remove and top with the butter and orange honey.
