Ingredients

  • 12-inch French or sourdough baguette 

  • 4 egg whites 

  • 1 cup fat-free soy milk 

  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 

  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar, divided

  • 3/4 cup blueberries, coarsely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil 

  • 1/4 cup pecans, toasted, chopped (optional; not included in the nutritional content)

 

Directions

  • Spray a 9-inch-square baking dish with cooking spray. Cut ten 1-inch-thick slices from the baguette. Arrange in the baking dish.

  • In a large bowl, whisk the egg whites until frothy. Then whisk in the milk, nutmeg, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.

  • Pour evenly over the bread, turning the slices to coat evenly. Cover the pan. Chill at least 8 hours or overnight, until the liquid is absorbed by the bread.

  • Preheat the oven to 400�F. Drop the blueberries evenly over the bread. In a small bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and oil, and pecans if you wish. Spoon evenly over the bread.

  • Bake, uncovered, about 20 minutes, until the liquid from the blueberries is bubbling.
