French Toast Muffins

Here’s a recipe to get your weekend started right and to get you thinking about brunch.

{My favorite meal of the week!}

Perfect for a crowd and easy to prepare without much fuss….I’m sounding like a salesman…but these French Toast Muffins are the real deal.

When I use to work the restaurant biz in the kitchen I was always put on Sunday brunch French toast duty and it was not only the most delicious french toast >recipe here< but it kept me the busiest on the line. So I know what it’s like to stand there all morning over a griddle making French toast, or FREEDOM TOAST”, like my Chef use to yell every time an order came up {allow me to roll my eyes}. So I decided then and there that brunch needs to be easy. Standing there is getting in the way of mimosa time and it’s not fun. This recipe cuts that wasted fun time in half.

So don’t stand there all morning and don’t back down from any freedom toast. Pair with some bacon, some fluffy scrambled eggs and plenty of good maple syrup. Boom. Breakfast a go-go.

    Is the orange juice really necessary?

      You can always omit the orange juice if you’re not a fan. The OJ gives these bites some sweetness and acidity.
      I always add a splash of OJ or a splash of Bailey’s to my French toast. It gives it a little something extra. But like I say in many of my posts, a recipe is what you make it, add what you like or omit what you don’t like.

    Would these need to be served right away? Or would they be ok to sit for the day and bring to a potluck?
