Great morning breakfast

This is one of my favorite dishes to do for a Holiday morning breakfast or brunch. Even Easter, which is just around the corner.

Fun for breakfast

I substituted 1 teaspoon of pure orange extract for 1 teaspoon of the rum. Very pleasant addition. Also be sure to used FIRM bread no thicker than 1/2-inch,.
