      RECIPE TITLE "Orange French Toast with Marmalade Topping"

    If you are looking for a lighter and truly unusual breakfast to serve to friends or family members this fall, you are going to love this easy-to-make Orange French Toast. I like to make it with very thinly sliced bread rather than regular bread slices, because the texture is slightly crunchier, and the servings look twice as big.

    Thinly sliced bread is available in most markets in both white and whole-wheat. However, if you cannot find it, just use four slices of regular bread in this recipe. Also, if possible, squeeze the orange juice just before preparing the toast.

    This french toast is much better when made with freshly squeezed orange juice, which contains quite a bit more pulp than does bottled or frozen juice. I usually make more of the Marmalade Topping than I plan to use, because it is also wonderful on pancakes and waffles, and is a tasty, fat-free dressing on fruit salads.


    • 1/2 cup orange marmalade
    • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

    Orange French Toast:

    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 large egg whites
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 tablespoon orange marmalade
    • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
    • 8 slices white or whole-wheat bread, very thinly sliced


    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.

    Each 2-slice serving contains approximately: 314 calories; 4 gm fat; 106 mg cholesterol; 498 mg sodium; 62 gm carbohydrates; 9 gm protein; negligible fiber.
