- Cooking Time: 9
- Servings: 4
- Preparation Time:
- 8 slices White Bread, 3/4 to 1 inch thick
- 3/4 cup Strawberry, Raspberry or Apricot Preserves, or Orange Marmalade
- 1/2 Cup California Walnuts, chopped
- 1 Cup Egg product
- 1 Cup nonfat Milk
- 2 TB Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 3 Cups Corn Flakes
- Nonstick cooking spray
- For Serving:
- Powdered sugar
- Maple syrup
- Preheat the oven to 475F.
- Cover a large baking sheet with heavy-duty foil.
- Using a sharp knife (a serrated blade works well), slice each piece of bread almost in half horizontally.
- Don't cut quite all the way through; you want to leave about a 1/2-inch crust "hinge" on each piece, thus creating a flap, or pocket, where you can separate the bread and put the filling.
- Make filling:
- In a small bowl, place the preserves or marmalade and 1/4 cup of the walnuts and beat briskly with a fork to combine.
- Spread about 2 tablespoons of the walnut mixture inside each bread pocket, then press down lightly on the filled bread to seal.
- In a pie plate or shallow bowl, stir together the egg product, milk, sugar and cinnamon.
- Set aside.
- In a large shallow bowl combine the corn flakes and the remaining 1/4 cup of walnuts.
- Crush the corn flakes between your fingers until they are broken into tiny, irregular pieces.
- Dip each slice of filled bread into the egg mixture, turning it three or four times, until the bread is completely coated and has absorbed some of the egg--but don't let the bread get soggy.
- Then press each slice, on both sides, into the walnut-corn flake crumbs.
- Pat the crumbs on if necessary to make them stick, and don't worry if the coating is not completely even.
- Continue until all the bread has been dipped and coated, setting the prepared slices aside on a sheet of waxed paper as you work.
- Place the foil-covered baking sheet in the oven to heat for about 3 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and rapidly coat the foil with nonstick cooking spray, then quickly place the bread in a single layer on the foil.
- Bake for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned on the bottom.
- Flip the slices over and bake 3 - 4 minutes longer.
- Transfer to warmed plates or a platter, dust with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup, if desired.
