Magnolia Inn French Toast

1-2 Medium French Baguettes or loaves; ends discarded and loaves cut diagonally in 3/4 in. slices
4 large eggs
1/2 cup premium vanilla ice cream
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
Blueberry & pure maple syrup

Spread out the bread slices in a non-reactive dish. In a medium bowl, mix eggs, ice cream, orange juice, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour over bread slices and let it sit until you are ready. I have left it overnight, covered in the refrigerator and it was fine. Heat your griddle, melt a small amount of butter and add the soaked bread. Cook until brown on one side, turn and cook about 2 minutes. Transfer to plates and cover with berries of your choice or sometimes I use apple slices cooked with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. If I use berries, I pour heated blueberry syrup and maple syrup on top and then top with lemon zest. Enjoy!
