Why I Love This Recipe

This is a very elegant, yet satisfying brunch dish.


Ingredients You'll Need

6 eggs
½ cup half and half
1/8 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
1 tablespoon orange peel, grated
********************************
Nine 1½ “ thick Brioche, cut in half horizontally. This may be frozen and used later.
Please note that part of this recipe needs a lot of time to prepare, so you won’t be able to serve this right away:
1 package yeast
2 teaspoons warm water

2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1½ tablespoons milk
3¾ cups flour
6 eggs
1 pound butter, room temperature
************************************
Ganache:
6 ounces white chocolate
¼ cup heavy cream
************************************
Chocolate Sauce – this makes 1 cup, but only ½ cup is needed here. You can refrigerate remaining sauce and use another time:
3½ ounces semi-sweet chocolate
6 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon heavy cream

5 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon butter
***********************************
3 tablespoons sweet butter
************************************
Powdered sugar, sifted
Whipped cream for garnish
½ cup pure maple syrup


Directions

Mix together eggs, half and half, sugar, Grand Marnier and orange peel.


Prepare Brioche and place in shallow dish.


Pour egg mixture over bread. Cover with plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator. When ready to serve, heat butter in large non-stick pan. When butter is very brown, add Brioche and cook until golden brown on each side. Remove to plate. Serve with powdered sugar and maple syrup. Serve and enjoy!
