Ingredients

  • 1 baguette
  • 8 large Eggland's Best eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 1/4 Cup maple syrup
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 13 X 9-inch casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.

Cut baguette into 1/2-inch cubes and spread along the bottom of the dish.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well and pour over bread.

Cover with plastic wrap and press down lightly, so the bread absorbs the egg mixture. Refrigerate at least 2 hours (or overnight) before baking.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until eggs are set.

When removed from oven, sprinkle with brown sugar and let stand for 10-15 minutes before serving

French Toast Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

French Toast Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
