I was a little leery about the oj but made it as it was since I really needed to use it up, and wow, the orange flavor was actually great. My dad, who's my biggest critic ever, and hates most of what I make, scarfed down 6 slices! He even gave his biggest compliment: This takes like something from a fancy restaurant! Since I had extra bread, I made 1.5 times the recipe and it worked great but it would have been fine with just the original amount of the recipe. Mine was probably way too rich. Only changes: milk because I never have cream, and no nutmeg either and while the bread was soaking I pushed in raisins into the bread. Don't worry if your bread soaks a little extra; my bread soaked about 10 min by accident and it still cooked up good. That totally put it over the top good! What I would like to do next time is reduce the sugar to maybe 2 TB and make a orange syrup to pour over instead. But it was fab french toast.
