Portuguese French Toast

Portuguese French Toast

Egg substitute and skim milk keep the fat down while cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest flavor this Portuguese French Toast wonderfully.


1-1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
4 cups skim milk
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 1-pound loaf Portuguese sweet bread
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange rind in a medium mixing bowl.

Cut the bread into seven or eight slices, and lay them, overlapping, in a large baking dish. Pour the egg mixture over the bread, covering every slice. The bread should not be entirely submerged though; the higher parts should become toasted and crispy.

Dot the bread with the butter. Bake the French toast in the oven for 35 to 45 minutes until the custard is set. Serve immediately.
