1. To make the topping, combine the marmalade and orange juice in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside.
2. To make the french toast, combine the eggs and egg whites in a bowl and mix with a whisk or fork until frothy. Add the salt, cinnamon, vanilla and marmalade, and mix until completely blended. Stir in the orange juice.
3. Place the bread slices in a flat baking dish and pour the egg mixture over them. Allow to stand for at least 15 minutes so the bread can absorb the liquid.
4. Spray a griddle or large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Place over medium-high heat until it is hot enough for drops of water to dance on the surface. Arrange the bread slices on the surface so that none of the slices overlap. Unless you have a very large griddle, you might have to cook the toast in two batches. Cook, turning as needed, until both sides of the bread are golden brown.
5. To serve, place 2 pieces of the french toast on each of four plates, and top each serving with 2 tablespoons of the marmalade topping. Garnish with twisted orange slices and fresh mint sprigs if desired.
