Crispy French Toast

Field editor Flo Burtnett, Gage, Oklahoma, lightens up her golden French toast with egg substitute and skim milk, then flavors it with orange juice, vanilla and a dash of nutmeg. The cornflake coating adds a fun crunch.

    I enjoyed this French toast. I did find it very difficult to get the cornflakes to stick to the toast, though.
