"Sometimes I got to eat French toast on the couch. In our house that was special, since we had a formal dining room and usually dressed for dinner. The toast came on a tray, and I was a queen," says Chava Lee of the Silverbow Inn and Restaurant in Juneau, Alaska.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a shallow bowl, whisk to blend eggs, egg whites, milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Step 2

Lightly mist a 10- by 15-inch nonstick pan with cooking oil spray.

Step 3

Soak bread thoroughly on each side, a few pieces at a time, in egg mixture.

Step 4

Place slices slightly apart in a single layer in baking pan.

Step 5

Bake in a 500° oven until toast is golden on bottom, about 5 minutes. With a wide spatula, turn slices over and bake until other side is browned, about 3 to 4 minutes longer. Transfer hot French toast to plates.

Step 6

Sprinkle with powdered sugar, drizzle with maple syrup, and serve with orange wedges, squeezing juice onto toast.
