I love french toast bakes! They are so yummy and comforting and easy! All you do is throw everything together the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning. Peaches are my favorite fruit, as I may have said before, so this was an awesome breakfast for me. It reminded me of peaches and cream. Serve this with some fat-free cool whip maple syrup and it is deeeelish!
Peach French Toast Bake
Adapted from Foodnetwork.com
1 large whole-wheat baguette (about 8 ounces)
4 whole eggs
4 egg whites
1 cup low fat milk
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 cups sliced peaches, fresh or frozen
1/2 lemon, juiced about 1 1/2 tablespoons
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 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.
