french toast cups & strawberry smoothie...

4 slices whole wheat bread, cut into cubes
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of ground nutmeg

In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg until well combined. Add bread cubes and mix together until all the bread is saturated.
Using a regular size muffin tin, scoop bread evenly into 6 of the muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until set and lightly golden brown.
Mix 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and 1 tablespoon milk until smooth. Drizzle on top of french toast cups.

*strawberry smoothie*

1 16oz bag frozen strawberries
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1 cup milk
1-2 Tbsp sugar or Splenda

Mix everything in blender until smooth.

The french toast cups are another winning recipe from Stephanie's Kitchen. She even sauteed apples in cinnamon & added them in!!! I doubled the recipe and it made 12 cups. I think these would be great with maple syrup, too. Just another great way to turn something ordinary into something guessed it...extraordinary. Your kids will LOVE them!
The smoothie was a hit, too. I just started putting things in the blender until it tasted right. We all drained our glasses!

At last, a recipe I can make in Venezuela with no substitutions! How these people live without brown sugar and chocolate chips is beyond me!
