Hello everyone! It's Amber from Dessert Now, Dinner Later! I'm back with another fabulous recipe for you to try! I am obsessed with Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, but this time I went all out and used the Rhodes White Bread Loaves, and this breakfast could not be any more delicious! We have made this twice already!

 

This Upside-Down Orange French Toast has to soak up all the eggy liquid overnight, so it's great for breakfast, brunch, or brinner (breakfast for dinner). We totally have breakfast for dinner at least once a month and this will be the perfect addition to our typical pancakes or waffles rotation. This orange french toast has orange zest, orange juice, and orange extract, making it super fresh and a wonderful spring dish. The bottom of the pan has this cinnamon-sugar and pecan mixture (with the orange zest) making it sweet and gooey on the top of your french toast once it's inverted onto a plate. Have I tantalized your tastebuds enough yet? Okay let's show you how to do it:

 

Gather your ingredients like always. I love that I can put my Rhodes white bread loaf in a bread pan in the morning and then bake it in the evening to have bread with dinner (or to save for this french toast). Fresh warm bread with butter for dinner, never tasted so good! Okay let's get back to today's recipe...

 

This Upside-Down orange french toast has orange zest, orange juice, and orange extract, making it super fresh and a wonderful spring dish.

Melt the butter and pour it into the bottom of a 9x13" pan. Combine the sugar, cinnamon, pecans and orange zest in a bowl. Sprinkle it on top of the melted butter.

Lay 8 slices of Rhodes bread, cut into 3/4-inch to 1-inch thick slices, on top of the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Sprinkle everything with some extra cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. 

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 45 minutes or as long as it takes to puff up and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

Scoop the slices of french toast individually out of the pan and immediately invert each piece onto a plate, so the bottom is now right-side up. Serve plain or with a light drizzle of syrup. I hope you enjoy this meal as much as we did!
