A Cozy Holiday Breakfast with Milk

Dec 13, 2016 03:31AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food




As the days get shorter and a chill fills the air, families around the country will gather for meals, celebrating time-honored traditions while making new memories around the table. Now more than ever, many families place a priority on sharing simple, natural foods together – foods they can feel good about enjoying every day, and especially during the holidays.

There’s an easy way to incorporate more wholesome ingredients to family mealtimes, and it’s a staple many Americans already have in their refrigerators: milk. As one of the original farm-to-table foods, milk is a simple way to add quality nutrition to a sweet or savory dish. With nine essential nutrients including 8 grams of high-quality protein per 8-ounce serving, you can feel confident serving your family milk during the holiday season and all year-round.

This holiday, start your day off right and gather your family around the breakfast table to enjoy classic favorites, like this French Toast Casserole. It’s made with good-for-you ingredients like milk for an extra nutrient boost of protein, calcium, vitamin D and more.

French Toast Casserole
Servings: 8

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 1/2    cups lowfat or fat free milk
  • 5          eggs
  • 1/3       cup sugar
  • 1          tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1          teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2       teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • salt, to taste
  • 1          loaf day-old bread, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick pieces
  • maple syrup or sauteed apples (below)

Sauteed Apples:

  • 2          tablespoons butter
  • 3          medium tart-sweet apples (such as Braeburn), diced
  • 1/4       cup sugar
  • 1          teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2       teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4       cup fresh blackberries (optional)
  1. Coat 8-by-8-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. In large bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, to taste. Add bread slices and let stand 10 minutes to soak up some custard. Arrange slices in baking dish in two rows, standing up on end. Slowly pour any remaining custard over bread. Cover dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

  2. Heat oven to 350° F. Uncover dish and bake 45 minutes, or until bread puffs slightly and browns.

  3. Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add apples and sugar, and cook 3 minutes, or until sugar melts and apples are soft but not mushy. Stir in lemon juice, vanilla and berries, if desired. Serve warm over French Toast Casserole.
