1 cup light maple syrup
1 (16 oz) loaf French bread
2 egg whites
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Coat a 3-quart oblong baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the maple syrup into the dish. Slice the French bread into 2-inch slices, and place over the syrup.
In another bowl, beat the eggs, egg whites, sugar, skim milk, vanilla, and cinnamon until well blended. Pour the egg mixture over the bread, pressing the bread to soak up the liquid overnight, or leave at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.!
Preheat the oven to 350.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.

I prepped this the night before, it was so easy. Then I just popped it in the oven in the morning and voila! easy breakfast.
I totally love this cook book from Holly Clegg. My mom surprised me and bought the Gulf Coast Favorites edition, I can hardly wait to try out all the recipes!
