Little ones love this crispy, chewy, sweet and yummy take on a classic breakfast treat!
1 cup Horizon Organic fat-free milk
3 large Horizon Organic eggs
1 tablespoon Horizon Organic butter, melted and cooled
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest (optional)
6 (1/2-inch-thick) slices day-old French bread or whole wheat Texas Toast
Coat a standard waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and preheat. (Note: Do not use a Belgian waffle iron - the chambers are too deep.) If bread is not already day-old, place slices on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees to dry out. In a wide-bottom bowl whisk together milk, eggs, melted butter, salt, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and orange zest. Dip a slice of bread in egg mixture and soak well. Remove and repeat with another slice. Place bread slices on hot waffle iron. Cook 4 to 5 minutes or until light brown and crisped on top. Repeat procedure with the remaining bread. Serve with fresh fruit or maple syrup.
