2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
3/4 cup nonfat milk
1 TBS vanilla
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
8 slices bread
In a shallow bowl, whisk to blend eggs, egg whites, milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Lightly mist a 10-inch by 15-inch nonstick pan with cooking spray.
Soak bread thoroughly on each side, a few pieces at a time, in egg mixture.
Place pieces slightly apart in a single layer in baking pan.
Bake in a 500-degree oven until toast is golden on bottom, about 5 minutes. With a wide spatula, turn slices over and bake until other side is browned, about 3-4 minutes longer. Transfer to plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Who doesn't love French Toast for breakfast? The spices and vanilla made this especially good! The only bread we had was light wheat, and it definitely was not thick enough for this recipe. Next time I'll probably buy thick bread from the bakery section of the grocery store.
