French Toast Easter Eggs

Here's a festive Easter treat and no-fuss brunch addition—all rolled into one! Like the CT home economists did, you can easily shape these eggs from bread with a cookie cutter, prepare them the same as traditional French toast and "paint" the pieces will jellies. Plus, youngsters, can decorate their own helpings with their name or designs.
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 20 min.
  • Makes
    6-8 servings


  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cut into 3/4-inch slices
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Strawberry, mint and grape jellies


  • Cut each slice of bread with a 3-in. oval cookie cutter; discard crust. In a bowl, beat eggs, orange juice, sugar, orange zest and salt. Melt butter in a large skillet. Dip both sides of bread into egg mixture; cook in butter until golden brown on both sides. Meanwhile, heat jellies in microwave-safe bowls just until warm. Transfer each to a separate plastic or pastry bag; cut a small hole in the corner of bag. Decorate French toast to resemble Easter eggs.
