      3 tablespoons butter, softened
      1 (16-ounce) sourdough French bread loaf, cut into 24 (1/2-inch) slices Cooking spray
      1 (12-ounce) jar orange marmalade
      2 3/4 cups 1% low-fat milk
      1/3 cup sugar
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
      6 large eggs
      1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts

      Spread softened butter on one side of each bread slice. Arrange 12 bread slices, buttered side down, slightly overlapping in a single layer in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spread marmalade evenly over bread; top with remaining 12 bread slices, buttered side up.

      Combine milk and next 4 ingredients (through eggs), stirring with a whisk. Pour egg mixture over bread. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

      Preheat oven to 350° then sprinkle casserole with walnuts. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until golden. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

      Serve with maple syrup.

      12 servings (serving size: 1 piece)

      *casserole can be assembled in less than 15 minutes and stored in the refrigerator overnight

      I’ve been pondering what I was gonna fix for breakfast this weekend…between the “French Breakfast Muffins” recipe and this one, I’m set. 🙂

      This stuff is great! Had it this weekend…everyone loved it.
      This one is a ‘gotta try’.

      Note:
      I used a loaf of French bread, but not sourdough.
      I used whole milk instead of 1%. (That’s all I had, although the 1% is better for you)
      And I omitted the walnuts. Hubby does’t like them and I didn’t have any pecans to substitute.

      I was thinking of cheating with this one, When we get our groceries at Aldi, they frequently have thick-sliced sourdough bread for $1.19 a loaf. I think rather than make or buy a french bread loaf, we’ll try the ready sliced.
