 Yield: 8 servings


4 large eggs

1 cup low-fat milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbsp. bourbon, optional

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

1 loaf Chunky Cinnamon Bread, sliced into 1-inch slices

Nonstick cooking spray

Toppings: see Chef’s tips


Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a shallow plate or container, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, optional bourbon, cinnamon and nutmeg until well combined.

Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.

Soak a couple slices of the Chunky Cinnamon Bread in the egg mixture; let sit for about 15 seconds per side. Allow excess to drip off.

Cook French toast in skillet for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown.

Transfer to a large baking sheet and repeat steps 3 and 4 with remaining bread slices. Bake browned French toast in oven for 5 to 8 minutes, or until the custard at the center is fully cooked.

Serve warm with desired toppings.
