Mississippi Coast Toast is a play on Coast Toast from Brockton Villa’s in La Jolla. La Jolla Mom has a pretty good bead on the recipe. Toast coast is a custard type french toast that is soaked over night and baked the next morning. The weirdest ingredient in this recipe is orange juice and orange flavoring. Trust me, I know that adding orange juice to your french toast seems weird, but it really does add another layer of flavor to one of my breakfast meals.
My biggest issue with the original recipe is that it is kind of a pain in the ass to cook. Rarely am I thinking the night before about breakfast and I rarely want to let things rest for an hour or longer before cooking it. I also don’t like cooking with things like “orange flavoring”. My version is geared more towards the southern home with ingredients usually found at home, hence the name Mississippi Coast French Toast. For my version you just need eggs, milk, butter, vanilla extract, orange juice, and standard white bread.
