Grand Marnier French Toast

French Toast was never my favorite breakfast when growing up…not that I didn’t like it but because my brothers always wanted French Toast and I wanted pancakes.  You guessed it!  French Toast usually won.  Now we didn’t get this recipe as kids, but it a winner.  This recipe is perfect for a special morning.


1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

2 Tablespoons sugar

4 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup half and half

1/4 cup Grand Marnier

Thick sliced bread (challah, brioche, white)

**Strawberries, powdered sugar, whip cream optional

Mix all ingredients (up to Grand Marnier) in a shallow bowl-or pie plate.  Heat a skillet or griddle with some butter.  Dip bread in the egg mixture.  Place on skillet and flip over when toasted.

Top with sprinkled powdered sugar, sliced strawberries and or whip cream.  I like to keep the strawberries fresh, but for an added change you can place sliced strawberries, sprinkled with about 2 Tablespoons of sugar and 1 Tablespoon of Grand Marnier in a bowl.  Let sit while preparing the French Toast.
