French Toast

1 (1-pound) loaf French bread

2 cups milk

6 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest


1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup sliced almonds


Powdered sugar, if desired

Maple syrup, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Slice bread into 10 to 12 (1-inch thick) slices. Arrange bread slices on bottom of greased 13x9-inch baking dish; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all remaining French toast ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Pour mixture over bread, covering all bread surfaces. Cover; refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine all sauce ingredients except almonds in saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes or until Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt is melted. Continue cooking until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat.

  5. STEP 5

    Sprinkle bread with almonds. Pour sauce mixture over bread mixture in pan. Bake, uncovered, 35-45 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean and edges are golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes; sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve warm with maple syrup, if desired.
