Recipe Submitted by the Country Charm Bed & Breakfast
2/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1 (8 oz) loaf Italian bread, cut in slices
1/3 cup melted butter
1/4 cup sliced macadamia nuts
With wire whisk, beat first 6 ingredients together. Place bread slices in a single layer in a tight fitting casserole dish. Pour egg/milk mixture over the bread, cover and refrigerate overnight, turning once.
Preheat oven to 400. Pour melted butter in jelly roll pan. Arrange bread slices evenly in pan, sprinkle with nuts. Bake 20-25 minutes. The bread will be puffy and light golden. Serve with butter and syrup.
(hint: if you use a dark non-stick pan, bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Also the recipe can be doubled.)
