French toast is my favorite weekend breakfast. I think it’s partly because it reminds me of being a kid and also because it’s so good!
My Dad makes the best French toast. I’m sure it helps that he cooks it in a ton of butter. I can’t even imagine how many points would be in it.
I wanted to try making a French toast casserole that was WW friendly. I love breakfast that you make the night before, then let it sit in the fridge all night. Then all you have to do is bake it in the morning.
This is one of those recipes. All you have to do is pop it in the oven and wait 30 minutes. Then you have a delicious, homemade breakfast.
The best part? This French toast casserole is only 2 Freestyle points per serving. I made it in an 8×10 baking pan and calculated it at 6 servings. That’s a big serving for only 2 points.
Part of what makes this recipe low in points is the bread I used. In the past I have used Sara Lee 45 calorie bread, but they didn’t have it at the grocery store.
Instead, I bought Aunt Millies 35 calorie bread. It’s only 1 point per slice.
I used 10 slices of bread and cut each piece into 12 pieces. The bread was really soft (which normally would be good) so I needed to dry it out some.
I put the bread on a baking sheet and popped it in the oven for 10 minutes @ 250.
While the bread was baking I whisked together the eggs, skim milk, Splenda, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
Once the bread was done baking I added it to an 8×10 baking pan that I sprayed with no-stick cooking spray.
Then I poured the egg mixture evenly over the bread.
I covered it with some plastic wrap and put it in the fridge overnight.
The next morning I put it in the oven for 30 minutes. That’s it! I added some fresh strawberries and sugar-free maple syrup.
I used 2 tablespoons of the syrup and that was 0 points. All together my breakfast was only 2 points and it kept me full until lunch.
