Orange Pain Perdue

A Taste of Louisiana with Chef John Folse: Louisiana Cooking With a Change of Heart

Something Old:

PREP TIME:
30 Minutes SERVES: 6

INGREDIENTS:
½ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1 (8-ounce) French bread
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup butter
½ cup powdered sugar

METHOD:
Cut French bread into 1-inch slices. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs and sugar. Using a wire whisk, blend well. Add whole milk, evaporated milk, orange juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Continue to whip until the custard is well-blended.

In a 12-inch cast iron skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Dip the bread into the custard, a few slices at a time, and sauté until golden brown on each side. Continue until all bread has been cooked.

As the lost bread is removed from the skillet, top it with powdered sugar. If using sliced bread in this recipe, dip the bread quickly, otherwise, it will fall apart before you can place it in the skillet.
