Comfort food for the lunch box! Wrap these individual snacks in pint-size freezer bags and freeze up to 2 months. In the morning, pop one in your child's lunch. It will be thawed by lunch time and will keep the other lunch box foods cold in the process.

1-1/4 cups reduced-fat (2%) milk, or regular whole milk
1/2 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute, or 2 whole eggs
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
4 cups 1/2-inch cinnamon or cinnamon-raisin bread cubes (about 6 bread slices)
1 tablespoon unsalted margarine or butter, melted

Combine milk, egg substitute, sugar, vanilla, salt and nutmeg, if desired, in medium bowl; mix well. Add bread; mix until well moistened. Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 12 medium-size muffin cups with paper liners.

Spoon bread mixture evenly into prepared cups; drizzle evenly with margarine.
