McKay House Bed and Breakfast Inn

Jefferson, Texas

Specialty Recipe

Orange Pecan French Toast

4 eggs
2/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Eight 1-inch slices French Bread
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup pecan pieces
Confectioners' sugar, orange slices, and fresh mint for garnish

With a wire whisk, beat together eggs, orange juice, milk, sugar, nutmeg, and vanilla. Place bread in single layer to fit tightly in a 9 x 13-inch casserole dish. Pour milk mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight, turning once.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Pour melted butter into a different 9 x 13-inch casserole dish. Spread butter evenly. Arrange soaked bread in a single layer in the casserole dish. Sprinkle with pecan pieces. Bake until golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. When removed from oven, sprinkle with hint of confectioners' sugar for presentation. Garnish with orange slices and fresh mint. Serve with warm maple syrup or fresh fruit.

Note: The McKay House innkeepers add a "secret" ingredient that makes this recipe unique. Guests enjoy trying to "guess" what the ingredient is. However, if prepared in the above manner, you will still enjoy this wonderful dish, although their "secret" ingredient has been left out. Guests at the McKay House usually determine the secret ingredient.
