Father's Day Breakfast Menu
French Toast Casserole & Orange Julius

If your family loves to sit down together over a steaming hot breakfast, then this menu is the perfect way to kick off your celebration of Father's Day.

This mouthwatering French Toast Casserole can be prepped in advance and then baked fresh on Father's Day morning. Our Orange Julius recipe is the perfect tangy complement to this rich and hearty meal.

French Toast Casserole

1 loaf of hard-crust, day-old French bread 8 large eggs
2 c half-and-half or cream
1 c milk
2 T brown sugar
1 t pure vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground nutmeg
Praline Spread (see below)

Slice bread into 20, 1-inch slices. Arrange the slices into two rows in a well-buttered 9 x 13-inch baking dish. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour the egg mixture over the bread, ensuring that all pieces are completely covered. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Pour the Praline Spread (below) over the casserole and cook for 40 minutes, until golden brown.

Praline Spread

1 1/2 sticks of butter
2/3 c packed brown sugar
2/3 c chopped pecans
1 1/2 T light corn syrup
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground nutmeg

Blend all ingredients and spread over casserole before baking.

Orange Julius

This tangy orange drink is the perfect complement the sweet French Toast Casserole. Rather than using half-and-half, our recipe calls for the healthier soy version.

1 c French Vanilla Soy creamer
1 c fresh squeezed orange juice (2-3 oranges)
6-8 ice cubes

Process all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Serve in a tall cup with a straw.

Serves 2.

Mmmmm! :) This sounds really good, but I think normal french toast, made with good french bread and egg mixture, is the way to go, along with orange juice. Still, this does sound delicious! :) ~Boone
