Orange Pecan French Toast

Saturday mornings are the best days for us to have a nice breakfast or brunch.  You can relax, take your time and if it's a beautiful day, eat outside soaking up the sunshine and fresh air. 

This Saturday we decided on Orange Pecan French Toast for breakfast.  We sipped hot coffee and talked about going to our grandson's baseball game while I beat the eggs until frothy.  As hubby got out the bacon and lined them up on a foil wrapped pan to cook outside on the grill, I added milk, orange zest, orange liquor, and a pinch of salt to the beaten eggs.  Once the bacon was sizzling outside, I dipped fresh egg-rich bread in the egg batter until saturated and placed them on a griddle where melted butter sizzled.    The orange zest was fragrant causing my mouth to water in anticipation of this delight.  While the French toast cooked, I toasted up some chopped pecans to serve over the top with butter and syrup.
