1/4 cup orange juice

4 slices of bread, torn into 1-inch pieces (about 4 cups)

1 (10-ounce) bag frozen mixed berries, thawed and drained


Add butter to a small bowl and microwave until melted, watching carefully. Add the honey, and stir to combine.


Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine the eggs, ricotta, and sugar. Mix to combine and beat the eggs. Add the milk, orange juice, butter and honey mixture, and bread. Stir to combine. Gently fold in the berries.
