We know the photo looks decadent but your school-day version of French toast doesn't have to be doused in syrup! Got stale bread? Then try this simple French toast recipe from Phyllis Grant, the culinary mama behind the foodie blog Dash and Bella, named after her two kids. Whisk 6 eggs, 4 cups milk, 2 tablespoons orange juice, a bit of zest, a touch of vanilla and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Pour over 16 to 20 slices of bread. Soak overnight, then bake in the a.m. at 350 for 25 minutes while everyone gets dressed. Finish it off with a quick broil to crisp it up.
