Good Morning: Saturday Morning Beefcake Fabulous Redux

Orange Mascarpone French Toast

Part One:
Sugar, one half cup

Part Two:
Mascarpone, 500 grams, room temperature
Orange Marmalade, five tablespoons
Honey, teaspoon
Coarse Salt
Orange Juice, freshly squeezed, one half cup

Part Three:
Orange Juice, freshly squeezed, one half cup
Milk, two cups
Eggs, four
Cinnamon, a pinch
Nutmeg, a pinch
Vanilla, one half teaspoon
Unsalted Butter
Almond oil
Twelve Slices of Favorite Bread

1. In part one you are making the topping for the finished product.
2. Gingerly peel the skin from the oranges making sure that the bitter white doesn’t come along with it.
3. Cut it into thin strips and boil three times to remove bitterness, straining the water after each time.
4. After the third draining put the rind strips aside, and add the half cup of sugar and a half cup of water in the same pot and simmer until the sugar is dissolved.
5. Return the rind to the pot and simmer for about fifteen minutes. Cool the rind. Refrigerate.
6. To make the mascarpone filling from part two, thoroughly mix all of those ingredients in a small bowl. Some replace the honey with maple syrup.
7. Part three is for the batter for the toast. Brioche slices can be used, but they are not necessary.
8. The mascarpone mixture should be room temperature, by the way, so it is easy to manipulate
9. Mix the juice, milk, eggs, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour into a large shallow dish, like a pie plate.
10. Melt the butter with a little almond oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
11. Quickly dip the slices into the egg mixture and put them into the skillet.
12. When half are finished on one side, dollop the mascarpone onto them, with a border of about one half inch all around and place the cooked side of the remaining slices on top.
13. Then cook the top of the sandwich.
14. When finished, remove the rind from the liquid, delicately dry them off and place them on the French toast sandwiches.
15. The perfect follow up to a morning romp.

Nothing like something creamy and sweet to start the day.
