Low Fat French Toast Casserole

January 6, 2010

Breakfast/Brunch

This weekend we are headed to Oglebay, a resort place in West Virginia. We are renting a big house with Brady’s extended family and hanging out for the weekend. We have been doing it for a few years and it is always a nice getaway. Saturday we have spa appointments and hanging out. Some people may ski or sled or hit up the pool. I won’t be in a bathing suit this year – something about starting the third trimester just doesn’t scream bikini! There is always next year! 🙂

Each family makes a meal(or two) for the weekend so everyone has plenty of delicious food! Our meal this year is breakfast so we decided it would be easiest and healthiest to make a few stratas and a big fruit salad! Here is the recipe I have used before to make French Toast Casserole. It’s usually a crowd pleaser – especially if you are trying to keep your resolutions!

Low Fat French Toast Strata

  • 1 1/2 cartons of Just Whites (egg whites)
  • 1 brick of low-fat or fat free cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. light or real syrup ( or more if you would like)
  • 2 tbsp. vanilla
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon (lots!)
  • 2/3 c. skim milk
  • 1 loaf or close to it 100% whole wheat bread
  1. Cut bread into cubes – like 1/2 in. by 1/2 in.
  2. Place cubes into sprayed baking dish you are planning on serving in
  3. In a bowl, mix egg whites, syrup, milk, cinnamon and vanilla.
  4. Cover the bread with the mixture.
  5. Cut cream cheese into little pieces and place throughout the dish.
  6. Cover with foil and keep cold in the fridge.
  7. Let dish set for 10-12 hours/overnight at least so bread is soggy.
  8. Bake at 375 for about and hour or until egg is cooked throughout!
  9. Serve hot with syrup!

Brady went to the Ohio State b-ball games with a few guys from work so I was on my own for dinner. You can guess what I had….Green Bean Mushroom casserole! Lots of it! With a pb and jelly sandwich.
