Lightbulb Cranberry-Orange French Toast

Festive Holiday French Toast

Recipe By: Jennifer A. Wickes
Serving Size: 4

3 1/2 cups yogurt, skim milk -- vanilla flavored
1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
6 large eggs
1 cup sugar -- divided
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
zest of 1 orange
8 slices stale bread
1/4 cup cranberry sauce
1/4 cup cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, juice, eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, cinnamon and orange zest. Pour approximately 1/2 the mixture into a greased 9" x 12" baking dish.

Place four slices of bread in the bottom. MIx the cranberry sauce and the cream cheese together in a bowl. Spread 2 tablespoons of cranberry sauce mixture over each slice of bread. Top each slice with another slice of bread. Pour over the remaining yogurt mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.

Bake 30 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and place under the broiler.

Serving Ideas : Serve with warmed orange marmalade, or an orange flavored syrup!

NOTES : It is important to use STALE bread in a French Toast recipe. The main reason is that stale (AKA dry) bread absorbs more moisture (the custard mix here) than fresh bread.

You can use thick pieces of bread if you like. In this case, make a cut on one side of each slice and stuff it with 2 tablespoon of the cranberry sauce mixture. You would only use 4 pieces of bread, then.

If you prefer, substitute the cream cheese for ricotta cheese or a soft tofu.
