Charter Yacht McGregor Recipe: Grand Marnier French Toast with an Orange Butter Sauce

Thinking about brunch? Here's a tasty idea...

Grand Marnier French Toast with an Orange Butter Sauce

By: Chef Julie Brown, Charter Yacht McGregor II

Serving Size: 6

  • 12 slices French Bread, cut 1 1/2″ thick
  • 6 ounces Cream Cheese
  • 6 ounces Orange Marmalade
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  • 1 1/2 cups Half and Half
  • 1/4 cup Orange Juice
  • 8 large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Nutmeg, freshly ground

  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/4 cup Orange Juice
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar

Using a sharp bread knife, make a pocket in each slice of bread. Place a small slice of cream cheese inside. Add orange marmalade to the pocket.

Beat together the eggs, cream, Grand Marnier, orange juice and nutmeg.

Pour egg mixture over the bread, and let stand 5 minutes.

Fry each slice in butter until golden brown. Remove to a cookie sheet and place in a warm oven (350 degrees). The toast will puff up and finish cooking through in the oven.

For the orange butter syrup, melt all ingredients together in a small saucepan.

To serve: Spoon syrup on the plates, add 2 slices french toast and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Garnish with fresh oranges or mint.

Goes great with mimosas!
