Holiday brunch

No….reason….to….get….up….the best feeling in the world ever! Ok, so that’s not entirely true, there are four reasons to get up, even in the holidays! Theres only so long a movie can stave off the hunger pains! Good job I love the feeding part of my job!

French toast in a clementine sauce
The sauce
The zest of 6 clementines
The juice of 6 clementines (obviously use the ones you zested!)
3/4 cup orange juice
2 tbsp sugar
The segments of 3 clementines

The French toast
6 slices of white bread
3 eggs
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of milk

Start by making the sauce. In a pan, add the zest and juice of the clementines, orange juice and sugar. Reduce for about five minutes. Add the pieces of clementines and turn off.
Next make the French toast. Whisk up the eggs along with the sugar. Slowly whisk the milk into the eggs. Turn on a large frying pan to a medium heat. Add some butter to grease the pan. Hold the bread down in the egg mixture making sure it’s nicely soaked through. Make sure the pan is good and hot.(but not burning hot!) Cook the soaked bread, till it’s golden (for about three minutes) and turn and cook on the other side. You should feel some resistance when pressed when it’s cooked. Serve hot with the clementine sauce.
