Whisk together the eggs, orange juice, milk, liqueur, sugar, grated rind, vanilla and nutmeg. Place the bread in a single layer with bread fitting snugly together. Pour the milk mixture over the bread, cover and refrigerate overnight turning once.

The next morning, preheat the oven to 400°. Pour the melted butter onto a jelly roll pan, spreading it evenly. Arrange the soaked bread slices in a single layer on the pan and sprinkle then with the pecans. Bake the slices for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Remove the toasts from the pan to a plate and serve immediately with maple syrup, butter and fresh fruit.
