Updated October 2, 2006

Ingredients

French Toast

  • 4
    eggs
  • 1/2
    cup half-and-half or milk
  • 1/3
    cup orange juice
  • 3
    tablespoons orange-flavored liqueur or orange juice
  • 2
    tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4
    teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4
    teaspoon salt
  • 16
    slices French bread, each 3/4 inch thick

Glorious Orange Sauce

  • 1/2
    cup butter or margarine
  • 1/3
    cup sugar
  • 1/3
    cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1/4
    cup pomegranate seeds, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, beat eggs, half-and-half, orange juice, liqueur, 2 tablespoons sugar, the vanilla and salt with fork. Dip bread into egg mixture, soaking thoroughly; place in ungreased rectangular pan, 15x10x1 inches. Pour any remaining egg mixture over bread. Cover loosely and refrigerate at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 2
    In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add 1/3 cup sugar and the orange juice concentrate, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Beat with wire whisk until thick and shiny. Stir in pomegranate seeds. Keep warm.
  • 3
    Heat griddle to 375°F or heat skillet over medium heat; grease with butter. Cook bread 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with sauce.

  • To get the seeds from a pomegranate, cut pomegranate in half and pry out the pulp-encased seeds, removing any of the light-colored membrane that adheres.
  • Instead of serving the sauce separately, you may want to spoon it over the French toast slices and top with additional pomegranate seeds.
