Italian Style French Toast Recipe

Sounds like an Oxymoron Italian French Toast?
Well whatever you want to call this, I call it delicious! The ingredients are very rich but if you want to treat your self to a great Italian french toast, this is it. Sometimes you have to indulge....

You will need a 1-lb whole loaf sliced by hand and thick ( cut  2 to 3 inch thick sliced)
suggestions: Italian,  egg bread, panettone, ciabatta, cuban bread, french bread stick, brioche.

6 eggs
1 cup heavy cream
pinch of cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon grated fresh orange peel

In a large baking square deep dish, whisk the eggs, cream, cinnamon, vanilla and peel together.
Lay the bread slices in the dish and let soak for 5 minutes.

Using a griddle heated on medium, melt 2 tablespoons unsalted butter. Place the Italian French toast on the griddle and cook 3 minutes on each side or golden brown.

Serve with real maple syrup, honey or jam.
