Grand Marnier French Toast *

Eight 3/4 inch thick slices of French Bread
4 large eggs
3/4 cup Half & Half
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Grand Marnier orange flavored liqueur
4 tablespoons butter

Whisk together the eggs, half and half, Grand marnier, sugar, grated orange peel and vanilla extract. Dip the bread slices into this mixture and place into a baking dish (suggested size 13x9x2). Pour the remaining mixture over the bread in the baking dish and let stand for twenty minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the two tablespoons of butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add bread slices and cook until brown and cooked through. Place the cooked bread onto the baking sheet in the oven to keep warm. Add butter to skillet as needed to cook remaining bread.

Serve with powdered sugar and warm maple syrup.

* Thawed frozen orange juice concentrate can be substituted for Grand Marnier. This dish can be prepared a day ahead of time, covered and refrigerated. Take out of refrigerator at least 1/2 hour prior to cooking.
