  1. BEAT eggs and milk in shallow dish until blended. SOAK one bread slice at a time in egg mixture, turning once; DIP each slice into peanuts to coat both sides.

  2. COAT large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; HEAT over medium heat until hot. PLACE two bread slices in skillet. COOK over medium to medium-low heat until golden brown and no visible liquid egg remains, 2 to 3 minutes per side. ADJUST heat as necessary so that peanuts do not burn.

  3. CLEAN skillet with a paper towel. REPEAT to cook remaining bread.

  4. SERVE with fruit if desired.
