peach french toast bake

this is not only healthy, but it is incredibly easy!  it's best with fresh peaches if you can get them.

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 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  1. preheat the oven to 350.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. in the morning, uncover and bake for 40 minutes.

serving suggestion: top with a dollop of vanilla yogurt and a side of canadian bacon.
