Mixed Berry French Toast

Makes eight servings

6 large eggs

  • 1 3/4 cups fat-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cubed
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen mixed
  • berries
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
  • Confectioners’ sugar and maple
  • syrup (optional)

Whisk together the first six ingredients. Place the bread cubes in a 13-by-9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour the egg mixture over top. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of eight hours.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the berries from the freezer and the French toast from the refrigerator and let both stand while the oven heats. Cover the French toast and bake for 30 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix the butter with the brown sugar until crumbly. Top the French toast with berries and a sprinkle of the brown sugar mixture. Bake, uncovered, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 to 20 minutes. If desired, dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve with syrup.
