Ingredients

  • 10 thick slices of day-old white or challah bread
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup Tropicana Orange Juice
  • 1/3 whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp melted butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a 9x13x2 baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Crack eggs into a large bowl and lightly beat with a whisk. Whisk in orange juice, cream, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  • Dip slices of bread in egg mixture one at a time, then arrange in overlapping, semi-standing-up layers in baking dish (as pictured). Drizzle with melted butter.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, until crispy and golden.  If you're questioning doneness, internal temperature should reach 160ºF.

OVERNIGHT VERSION: cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Turn oven on to 375ºF and remove dish from fridge while oven preheats. Bake for about 35 minutes, until crispy and golden.  If you're questioning doneness, internal temperature should reach 160ºF.
