Cinnamon French Toast

Cinnamon French Toast by

1 lg egg (I used 2 eggs)
2 egg whites
1/4 c skim milk (I used whipping cream)
1/2 t vanilla extract
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/8 t ground nutmeg
8 slices French bread 1" thick (I used 4)
cinnamon-sugar *optional
maple syrup

1. In a shallow bowl, using a whisk, beat egg and egg whites until foamy. Add the milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Beat well; set aside.
2. Preheat oven to 200. Lightly spray a large non-stick skillet with vegetable cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Dip 4 of the bread slices into the egg mixture, turning to coat and draining excess back into the dish.
3. Place bread slices in prepared skillet. Cook until golden brown turning once, about 1-3 minutes each side. Transfer cooked slices to a plate; keep warm in oven. Dip remaining bread slices in egg mixture; cook as directed. Spray skillet with vegetable cooking spray as needed. Divide French toast among serving plates. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon-sugar and top with maple syrup. Serve immediatesly. Garnish with fresh berries.
