Ingredients

Ingredients

  • whole wheat bread (lowest sodium available, halved lengthwise)
    6 slice
  • milk (fat-free)
    1 1/2 cups

    1 1/2 cups
  • light brown sugar

Directions

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Place the bread halves with the cut sides (the crustless sides) touching the bottom of the pan and the crust sides resting on the slice beneath them. The slices should overlap slightly. Set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg substitute, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour over the bread. Using a spoon, press down the bread to soak up the milk mixture. Spread the fruit cocktail over the bread. Drizzle with the honey. Using a teaspoon, dot with the margarine.

  4. Bake for 55 minutes–1 hour, or until the center of the casserole is set (doesn’t jiggle when the casserole is gently shaken). Let cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
