- 1 loaf bread, cut into cubes (about 6 ½ cups)
- 4 large eggs
- 1 ½ cup milk
- 1 cup orange juice
- 2 Tbsp. maple syrup (plus additional for serving)
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. ground nutmeg

Directions1. Spray a 9x13" or other 3-quart casserole dish with cooking spray and arrange bread cubes in an even layer in the dish. 1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, orange juice, maple syrup and spices. Pour egg mixture over top of the bread, making sure all of the bread gets soaked. Scatter cranberries over top, making sure to tuck a few cranberries into the crevices between the bread cubes. 1. Let the French toast soak at least 15 minutes at room temperature, or cover with cling wrap and place in the fridge overnight. 1. When you're ready to bake, preheat oven to 375°F. Bake for about 30 minutes or until tops are lightly browned. 1. Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup. Enjoy!
