Serves 4

Nonstick cooking spray
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices French bread
1/4 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Sifted powdered sugar (optional)


Heat oven to 450°F.

Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. In a pie plate, combine eggs, LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk, vanilla and 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Soak bread slices in egg mixture for about 1 minute per side. Place on prepared baking sheet.

Bake about 6 minutes or until bread is lightly browned. Turn bread over and bake 5-8 minutes more or until slightly puffed.

For orange syrup, stir together orange peel, orange juice, honey, cornstarch and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.

Sift powdered sugar over toast, if desired. Serve with warm orange syrup.
