Mixed Berry French Toast

Let's just say that this is AMAZING!  I wanted to make a brunchy type dish for when my friend came over for breakfast, did a little search, and came up with this gem.  It was so good that the two of us ate half of it!  oops! :)


  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cubed
  • 6 egg whites
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-3/4 cups fat-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen unsweetened mixed berries
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar


1.  Place bread cubes in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the egg whites, eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and salt; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

2.  Thirty minutes before baking, remove the berries from the freezer and set aside, and remove the baking dish from the refrigerator. Bake, covered, at 350° for 30 minutes.

3. In a small bowl, cut butter into brown sugar until crumbly. Sprinkle berries and brown sugar mixture over French toast. Bake, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.


Serves 8
WW points - 7 (and worth every one of them)

Kneekole's Notes & Comments

* Do not think "Oh, I've got a loaf of sandwich bread here, I'll just use that."  You will waste your sandwich bread and your breakfast on a sub-par meal.  It's the thick French bread that makes this dish so amazing.

* Shout outs to Craig, who cubed that bread like no other, and Carolyn & Ellie for enjoying it with me.

* I cannot wait to make this again!  I just need to find friends to eat it with me to help me with my self control. :)
