  • 20 oz Challah bread, ripped (about 8 cups)
  • 3 cups lowfat milk
  • 1 can (12 ounce) fat-free evaporated milk
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 can (15 ounce) cans Libby’s® Fruit Cocktail, undrained

Cinnamon Sugar:

Coat a 13x9x2-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Press ripped bread into pan.

In a large bowl, mix milk, evaporated milk, eggs, fruit, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and vanilla. Pour over bread and press down so all pieces soak up liquid. Let sit 15 minutes.

Mix together 2 tablespoon sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 30 minutes.

Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and bake an additional 25 – 30 minutes or until center is set.

Cut and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
