I'm one of those old-fashioned breakfast types. Eggs and bacon, maybe a biscuit. But a few weeks ago, my husband made Haitian French Toast, and we've decided to make it a special breakfast treat once in a while. Special ingredient? Orange juice.

I'm not saying it's low on calories. Definitely not. (That's why it's a ONCE IN A WHILE treat...)


1 loaf of French bread
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 eggs
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 dash ground nutmeg
3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp powdered sugar for dusting

Cut loaf ends off and reserve for other use. Cut remaining loaf into 1- 1 1/2" slices. In a baking dish, combine juice, cream, eggs, cinnamon, and sugar. Place dish and turn until mixture is absorbed, about 3-5 minutes.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add bread slices and cook until browned on both sides, about five mins. Dust with powdered sugar.
