"This French toast recipe is one of my favorites, and it's great for company because everyone loves it. Fresh orange zest and juice, as well as orange liqueur, add a bright, citrusy flavor to every delicious slice. I serve it with butter, sanding sugar, or some pure maple syrup," says Martha Stewart. Make her crowd-pleasing take on the breakfast classic for a winning dish.

Cook's Notes

Always zest your citrus before juicing -- it's much easier. Dip the bread just before cooking, and take care with tender brioche slices. If the pan overbrowns, wipe it out with a damp paper towel and start again with new oil and butter.

When Martha made this recipe on "Martha Bakes," she halved the ingredients.

    Oh Lord, one of my favorite breakfasts (and sometimes suppers). Love it served with bacon - the sweet and salty of it. But Martha, I think I make the best ever. LOL I put 1t. vanilla, 1t. cinnamon, a pinch of powdered clove, a pinch of salt and 3T cream (or half and half) in my egg mixture. Yum!!!

    Just made it this morning for the first time, really delicious. My husband loved it. I didn't have brioche, so I used leftover French bread. Really nice!

    Loved this recipe! We had to use challah bread as the bakery had sold out of brioche but it still turned out fantastic. I would make this again in a heartbeat
