Chilhowee Bluff Inn

Sevierville, Tennessee

Specialty Recipe

Grand Marnier French Toast

A signature dish from Chilhowee Bluff Inn.

Ingredients
6 eggs
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
8 one-inch slices Italian-style bread
Butter for frying
2 navel oranges, peeled and segmented
2 large bananas, peeled and sliced
8 large strawberries, sliced
Confectioners' sugar
Grand Marnier Syrup:
6 ounces orange juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons light Karo corn syrup
3 Tablespoons Grand Marnier or Triple Sec

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Whisk 6 eggs, 1/2 cup orange juice, milk, 1/4 cup Grand Marnier or Triple Sec, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Place bread slices in a baking dish and pour egg mixture over the bread. Let soak 1 minute; turn slices and soak at least 20 minutes or as long as overnight.

In a skillet, melt 2 Tablespoons butter. Fry bread slices until golden brown on each side (they will not be done in the center.) Place on a sheet pan in the oven to continue cooking. Repeat with remaining bread slices. Bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until bread slices are puffy and golden.

Orange Syrup: Blend all syrup ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes. Serve warm. (Makes approximately 1 cup.)

Serving: Arrange 2 overlapping slices of French toast on a warm plate. Top with 1/4 of each: orange segments, banana slices, and strawberry slices. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve with a side of bacon or sausage if desired. Serve hot Grand Marnier syrup on the side.

Serves: 4
