My friend Nicole sent me this recipe and insisted that I make it. I'm so glad she did! It's a great treat when making breakfast for a group of people.
1 loaf of French Bread, cubed -- very small
6 egg whites
2 cups fat free milk
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 package frozen unsweetened mixed berries
2 tbsp cold butter
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
Place bread cubes in a 13 x 9 baking dish coated with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl combine egg whites, eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.
Pour over bread. (I suggest fully emerging the bread into the liquid mixture).
Then refrigerate overnight for 8 hours.
The next morning, remove the berries from the freezer 30 minutes before baking and set aside.
Also remove the baking dish from the fridge.
Bake, covered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
In a small bowl, cut butter into brown sugar until crumbly.
Sprinkle butter mixture over French toast. Top with berries.
Bake, uncovered, for 15 to 25 minutes.
