Why I Love This Recipe

So.. my husband looooves french toast. This is a great way to get him something sweet but low calorie in the morning. It's uber sweet and delicious and only 183 calories and 1g fat per serving and serves 12.. Loooove it.


Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups pasteurized liquid egg whites, such as Egg Beaters
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1-pound loaf sliced whole-wheat bread
1 cup chopped dried apples, (3 ounces)
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar


Directions

1) Whisk milk, egg whites, honey, vanilla and salt in a large bowl.


2) Trim crusts off 8 bread slices and set aside. Cut the crusts and the remaining bread into 1-inch pieces. Toss with dried apples, raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg in another large bowl.


3) Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Transfer the bread mixture to the pan. Lay the reserved crustless slices evenly on top, trimming to fit. Whisk the milk mixture one more time, then pour evenly over the bread. Press the bread down with the back of a wooden spoon, making sure it’s evenly moist. Cover with parchment paper, then foil, and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.


4) Preheat oven to 350°F.


5)Bake the casserole, covered, for 40 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until puffed, set and lightly browned, about 20 minutes more. Let stand for 10 minutes; dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve.


TIP: You can do steps 1-3 and stick it in the fridge for a day. Nice time saver to spread out the time it takes.. but it's well worth it!
