Unlike the classic French toast that's usually high in calories, fat and very rich. This recipe uses 1% milk, egg whites only and whole wheat bread, which makes a much healthier French toast for breakfast that still tastes delicious. Some fresh fruits, a cup of orange juice and a bit maple syrup, a yummy and wholesome breakfast is ready to enjoy.

undefined

Whisk milk, egg whites, honey, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl.

Trim crusts off 4 slices of bread and set aside. Cut the crusts and the remaining bread into 1-inch pieces.

Toss with dried apples, raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg in another large bowl.

Coat a 9-by-9-inch or 7-by-10 inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Transfer the bread mixture into the pan. Lay the reserved crustless slices evenly on top, trimming to fit.

Whisk the milk mixture again, then pour evenly over the bread.

Press the bread down with the back of a wooden spoon, and make sure it’s evenly moist.

Cover with parchment paper, then foil papper, and refrigerate for at least 10 hours or up to 1 day.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake the casserole, covered, for 40 minutes.

Uncover and keep baking until puffed, set and lightly browned, about 22 minutes more.

Let stand for 10 minutes on a wire rack, dust with confectioners’ sugar.

Serve warm.

This recipe is an excellent idea to use up leftover bread. Cut down the fat and calories a lot, much healthier. I still have some bread in my freezer, preparing to make this recipe...
