2 egg whites

1/4 cup skim milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

8, 1 inch thick – diagonally cut slices of French or Italian bread

Cinnamon Sugar

Pure Maple Syrup (not the fake corn syrup stuff)


In a shallow bowl, use a wire whisk to beat egg and egg whites until foamy.

Add milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 200 F.

Lightly spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat.

Dip 4 of the slices into the egg mixture, turning to coat, and drain excess back into bowl.

Place bread slices in prepared skillet. Cook until golden brown – turning once, about 2 minutes per side.

Transfer cooked slices to a plate and keep warm in preheated oven.

Optional- Serve with cut up fresh fruit.
