Oven French Toast with Orange Apple Syrup

Can you tell that I love breakfast foods?! This recipe is from Florida's Natural seen here at their website. We liked it very much. For our version pictured above, we used almond milk in place of the milk, and we happened to have fresh Florida oranges (a birthday gift sent from Hale Groves from my Mother-in-law) that we squeezed in place of the bottled juice.

Oven French Toast with Orange Apple Syrup (from Florida's Natural)
Ingredients for French Toast:
•2 eggs
•1/2 cup Florida's Natural® Brand Premium orange juice
•1/4 cup milk
•1 tsp. vanilla
•1/4 tsp. cinnamon
•1/4 tsp. nutmeg
•8 French bread slices, cut 1-inch thick
•1/4 cup melted butter

Ingredients for Orange Apple Syrup:
•3/4 cup Florida's Natural® Brand Premium orange juice
•1/4 cup brown sugar
•1 medium apple, cored and thinly sliced
•1/2 tsp. cinnamon
•1/4 tsp. ginger
•1 orange, peeled and cut into sections

Instructions:
In a medium bowl whisk together all French toast ingredients except French bread and butter. Dip both sides of French bread in mixture and place in buttered 13 x 9-inch baking dish; pour remaining mixture over bread. Refrigerate overnight or bake. Before baking, drizzle melted butter over French bread. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, in large skillet combine 3/4 cup orange juice and brown sugar; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture is bubbly. Add apples, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and ginger. Continue cooking until apples are tender; add orange sections.
Serve over French toast.
