French Toast in the Oven

Out too late last night celebrating Valentine's Day...we are recovering this morning with a delicious brunch of French Toast.
I was fortunate to get this recipe from wonderful golfer, commentator and friend, Judy Rankin.  It is just scrumptious.

1/2 cup (one stick) melted butter
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Mix first three ingredients and pour into a large cookie sheet with sides.

6 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

In a bowl, beat eggs, add milk, juice, sugar, salt, cinnamon and orange peel.

8 slices French bread

Dip bread into this mixture and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes, then turn and bake another ten minutes. This is a wonderful breakfast for company and can be partially assembled the night before; just dip the bread in the morning.
Veronica is our sleepy-time gal this morning.  I'm a little jealous that she managed to sleep to 10:30.  I've been cleaning house since 8:00. Yeah, I'd like to have her legs and waistline, too.
