Yield

Makes 5 servings

Ingredients

2 cups cholesterol-free egg substitute
1/2 cup evaporated skimmed milk
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 loaf (1 pound) Italian bread, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices (about 20 slices)
1 jar (10 ounces) no-sugar-added orange marmalade
Nonstick cooking spray
Powdered sugar (optional)
Maple-flavored syrup (optional)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine egg substitute, milk, orange peel, vanilla and cinnamon in medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. Spread 1 bread slice with 1 tablespoon marmalade to within 1/2 inch of edge. Top with another bread slice. Repeat with remaining bread and marmalade.
  3. Spray griddle or large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Dip sandwiches in egg substitute mixture. Do not soak. Cook sandwiches in batches 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  4. Transfer toasted sandwiches to 15X10-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until sides are sealed. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with syrup, if desired.
