|3/4 cup / 175 ml||fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt|
|1 tsp / 5 ml||finely grated orange zest|
|4||Naturegg Omega 3|
|8||slices, day-old whole-wheat bread, about 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick|
|2 cup / 500 ml||frozen mixed berries, such as raspberries, strawberries or blueberries, thawed|
|1 1/4 cup / 300 ml||1 or 2% milk|
|1/2 tsp / 2 ml||ground cinnamon|
|2 tsp / 10 ml||vanilla extract|
Stir the yogurt with the orange zest; set aside.
Pour the eggs into a shallow dish. Coat a large, nonstick skillet with nonstick spray; set over medium heat. Whisk eggs with milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
Working in batches, soak both sides of the bread in the egg mixture until saturated; transfer to the skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden. Repeat using remaining bread and egg mixture. (Coat the skillet with nonstick spray between batches as needed.)
Spread the yogurt mixture evenly over 4 pieces of French toast; arrange a layer of berries over the yogurt. Cap with remaining French toast.
Thaw berries on a paper towel-lined plate to blot any excess fluid.
Using slightly stale bread soaks up more egg and makes better French toast.
Use fresh berries when in season.

Tips: Shell Eggs
When separating eggs, squeeze an empty plastic bottle and hold over the yolk, release some of the pressure and the yolk will suck into the bottle.
