Don't be surprised to hear your kids bolt out of bed when they smell this delicious dish cooking. Use French bread to cut down on the calories.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Place bread slices in a single layer in 2 (13 x 9-inch) glass or ceramic baking dishes.

Step 3

Combine milk and next 3 ingredients (through egg white), stirring well with a whisk. Pour milk mixture over bread, turning slices until milk mixture is absorbed. Transfer bread slices to 2 large baking sheets coated with cooking spray.

Step 4

Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until browned and puffed, turning halfway through cooking time. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Step 5

Place 3 French toast slices on each of 6 plates. Top with strawberries, syrup, and powdered sugar.

Step 6

A friendlier French Toast

Step 8

My lighter version uses 2% reduced-fat milk rather than heavy cream in the egg mixture--this small change saves 250 calories and 48 grams of fat per serving!
