Mary’s New Orleans French Toast

Just the perfect “warm-up” comfort food for those chilly winter mornings!

8-10 French bread slices 3/4″ thick
4 eggs
1 T sugar
4 T Grand Marnier (generous)
1/2 t vanilla
1 C whole milk

Put bread (1 layer) in 9 X 13 pan. Pour mixture over bread.  Turn bread over to coat. Cover pan with saran wrap and refrigerate overnight. Fry in 2 T butter and serve with maple syrup and powdered sugar.

You may need to double the recipe if there are kids (or kids at heart) around!
