  • 1

    large egg

  • 2

    large egg whites

  • teaspoon salt

  • 3

    tablespoons sugar

  • ¼

    teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • ¼

    teaspoon almond extract

  • cups 1% low-fat milk

  • ¼

    cup whole milk

  • 8

    (1-inch) slices round ciabatta

  • Cooking spray

  • 1

    cup sliced almonds


1. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. 2. Whisk together first 6 ingredients (through almond extract) in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in both types of milk. Pour mixture into a shallow baking dish. Working in batches, if necessary, place bread in dish and let soak 3 minutes on each side. 3. Coat a griddle or skillet with cooking spray. For each slice of the bread, place 2 tablespoons almonds in a single (but fairly densely packed) layer on the hot griddle, forming an area the size and shape of a bread slice. Press 1 side of the bread into the almonds, and cook 4 minutes or until golden brown. (You will probably need to repeat this process in 2 batches.) Flip the bread over, and cook 3–4 minutes or until speckled golden brown. Serve immediately.
