The Fabric Maverick says... Chef Bubba (Red Neck Cafe) is here!

May 9, 2008

Chef Bubba is a lover of all women. He loves women from 2 years and up. Miz Ona, his mother, raised him to appreciate women and everything they do for the family and world around them. Now Chef Bubba is the first to admit that his menus tend to be for the hearty male appetite, so he is breaking his rule of using only his own recipes to offer this delightful breakfast menu for Mother's Day.

Marmalade French Toast Casserole

Marmalade French Toast Casserole
Grapefruit or mixed fruit marmalade will work just as well as the orange marmalade called for in the recipe. Serve the casserole with honey or pancake syrup warmed with orange rind and a splash of orange juice (add one teaspoon rind and two tablespoons juice per 1/2 cup syrup). This easy casserole can be assembled in less than 15 minutes and stored in the refrigerator overnight.


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

Sprinkle casserole with walnuts. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until golden. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.


12 servings (serving size: 1 piece)

Serve this with turkey bacon or turkey sausage. Chef Bubba has provided a recipe that tastes good and keeps your waistline under control.  No guilt, ladies!  Your children can prepare this ahead of time so they may enjoy Mom time.

Love from Chef Bubba.
