Tasty Oven French Toast With Lactaid & Melissa d'Arabian on The TODAY Show #recipe #foodiefun #AD

Sagezilla Vs. Lactose

Moooove over milk... Lactaid is in the house.  If someone in your family gets dairy discomfort, quit your belly achin' and try it.   Lactaid tastes like real milk because it IS real milk, with an added enzyme for easy digestion.   

Half of my family is sensitive to dairy, so we were elated when Lactaid wanted to partner up with us on a series of sponsored posts.   We were also stoked to find Costco stocks big jugs of Lactaid, because it's tasty stuff and we've been guzzling it!  I'd just bought a jug a few days ago and went to make a recipe for this post and found the kids drank it all already.   I had to run out and restock.

Check out ChiIL Mama's past Lactaid post here for more on lactose intolerance, varying degrees of dairy sensitivities and more.

Did you see Lactaid's celebrity spokesmom, Melissa d'Arabian on the TODAY Show?   She's got a rockin' recipe for lactose free creamy mushroom sauce.  Click here to check it out.

My daughter and husband have the most trouble with breakfast, since lactose intolerance is worse on an empty stomach, so we checked out the cool recipes from Lactaid and whipped up some Oven French Toast.   Lactaid can be used in place of milk in any of your tried and true favs, too.

The French Toast was tasty, moist, and easy.  The whole family dug it, and nobody got stomach cramps!   Here's the recipe.   Click here for many more from Lactaid.   

Baked French Toast with Orange Syrup
Submitted by: Makers of LACTAID® Brand Products
Once you try this oven-baked French toast, you’ll never make it the old way again. On a griddle or in a skillet, French toast must be made in batches. Baking allows you to cook all eight pieces at once.
  • Serves: 4
  • Prep Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 11 Minutes
  • Total Time: 32 Minutes

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices French bread
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Sifted powdered sugar (optional)

  1. Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. In a pie plate combine eggs, LACTAID® Reduced Fat Milk, vanilla, and 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Soak bread slices in egg mixture for about 1 minute per side. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in a 450 degree F oven about 6 minutes or until bread is lightly browned. Turn bread over and bake 5 to 8 minutes more or until slightly puffed.
  4. For orange syrup, stir together orange peel, orange juice, honey, cornstarch, and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from heat.
  5. Sift powdered sugar over toast, if desired. Serve with warm orange syrup.
