This is a Thanksgiving Brunch tradition at our house! I've been serving it for years - everyone starts early in November letting me know that it just won't be Thanksgiving without the french toast to start the day!
One of my favorite french toast casseroles, I have made it numerous times without any substitutions and it always comes out well, all though I like the idea of honey instead of corn syrup. I too, was afraid it would have an over whelming orange flavor but it does not. Would highly recommend this recipe.
This is DELICIOUS. I cut the brown sugar in half and completely did away with the other sugar it called for. I used simply orange, orange juice. Think if you cut the sugar like I did probably should use an orange juice over fresh squeezed. Make it, you'll love it!
Great. I used 1/2 the brown sugar and corn syrup and it was plenty sweat. I will also add more pecans next time. It did not need syrup so I topped with whip cream, fresh berries and dusting of powdered sugar.
