Peach French Toast


Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their Friday (hooray!!!!). I am very excited for the weekend, although we don't have anything big planned. I love just relaxing and I don't have to teach class this Saturday am, so it will be nice to sleep in with Josh and Frank(pictured as a baby above)!

This is a great weekend breakfast recipe! You have to prepare it the night before, but you can just get up and pop it in the oven and have a delicious and healthy breakfast in 40 minutes (you can enjoy your coffee until its done :)). I love that food network has added Ellie Krieger- I think she makes such innovative, healthy meals!

Cooking spray
1 large whole-wheat baguette (about 8 ounces)
4 whole eggs
4 egg whites
1 cup low fat milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups sliced peaches, fresh or frozen
1/2 lemon, juiced about 1 1/2 tablespoons
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Spray a 9 by 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Slice the baguette into 1/2-inch slices and arrange the slices in a single layer in the baking pan. Whisk together the eggs, egg whites, milk and vanilla. Pour the egg mixture over the bread in the pan. In a medium bowl, toss peaches with the lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar. Scatter the peach slices evenly on top of the bread. Combine the remaining brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Uncover and bake for 40 minutes.

Serving suggestion: Top with a dollop of vanilla yogurt, a drizzle of maple syrup and a side of Canadian bacon.
