Cornflakes add irresistible crunch to this easy baked French toast recipe. My light version uses egg substitute and skim milk but still gets plenty of flavor from vanilla, spice and a kiss of orange. —Flo Burtnett, Gage, Oklahoma

  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dash ground nutmeg
  • 12 slices day-old French bread (3/4 inch thick)
  • 1-1/2 cups crushed cornflakes

  2. Place in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes; turn. Bake 5-8 minutes longer or until golden brown.

Can you freeze Crispy French Toast?

Remove baked French toast from pan to wire racks to cool. Freeze between layers of waxed paper in airtight freezer containers. To use, place frozen French toast on a greased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 425° oven for 5-7 minutes or until heated through. Or, microwave each French toast on high for 30-60 seconds or until heated through.
