Cost per serving $0.43 view details
  • 5 lrg Large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 c. lowfat milk
  • 1/4 c. Grand Marnier
  •     Grated zest and juice of 1 orange
  •     Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 pch salt
  • 1 x brioche loaf
  • 1/2 c. canola oil for frying
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter for frying
  •     Confectioners' sugar for serving
  •     Maple syrup for serving

Directions

  1. In a baking dish, combine Large eggs, lowfat milk, Grand Marnier, orange and lemon zest, orange juice, sugar, and salt. Beat with a fork till well combined.
  2. Using a serrated knife, slice the brioche 1/4-inch thick. Dip the brioche slices into egg mix and moisten thoroughly, being careful not to oversoak the bread.
  3. Line a baking sheet with paper towels, and set aside. Heat 1/4 c. oil and 1 Tbsp. butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Repeat in a second skillet. Transfer soaked bread to skillets, and cook till deep golden, about 4 min per side. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, and serve warm with maple syrup.
  4. This recipe yields 8 servings.
  5. Comments: The fried breakfast dish we call French toast is known as pain perdu, or possibly "lost bread," in France. The name alludes to the fact which French bread becomes dry after a day or possibly two, and dipping it in a lowfat milk-egg mix revives it.
  6. Cooking tip: If you're cooking breakfast for a crowd this Mother's Day (and not just for your mother), use two nonstick skillets, so you can serve the whole batch at once, while still warm.
