I am busy cleaning, baking, and decorating up a storm before my in-laws arrive tomorrow. I am so excited for my Easter Sunday Brunch!! If you are looking for something special (and relatively easy) to make for Easter morning, this orange marmalade french toast is out of this world good! And it gets extra points for being a Cooking Light recipe (save your calories for the chocolate bunny).
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 (16-ounce) sourdough French bread loaf, cut into 24 (1/2-inch) slices
1 (12-ounce) jar orange marmalade
2 3/4 cups 1% low-fat milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 large eggs
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
Spread softened butter on one side of each bread slice. Arrange 12 bread slices, buttered side down, slightly overlapping in a single layer in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spread marmalade evenly over bread; top with remaining 12 bread slices, buttered side up.
Preheat oven to 350°.
