Maple-Cinnamon French Toast

Maple-Cinnamon French Toast
Ingredients for 8 servings:
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 teaspoon butter or canola oil
  • Warm Wild Blueberry Sauce
  • Blueberries (optional)
  • Preheat oven to lowest setting (about 200°). Place a large, shallow baking dish in oven to warm.
  • Combine the eggs, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk until the mixture is well blended. Place 2 slices whole wheat bread in batter, and soak for 2 minutes.
  • Heat a large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Melt butter or heat oil in skillet, swirling pan to spread it around.
  • Lift bread slices out of batter, letting them drain slightly, and place bread in skillet.
  • Cook until golden, flipping once (about 2-3 minutes on each side). Transfer toast to the warm baking dish in the oven. Repeat the procedure with remaining bread slices.
  • Serve hot with warm blueberry sauce spooned on top. Garnish with additional blueberries, if desired.
