1 c

monterey jack cheese, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
12 oz

1/2 c

2 Tbsp

1Spray a 7 x 11-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Arrange half of the cubed bread on the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle half of the cranberries evenly over the top of the bread. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the cranberries. Repeat layers with remaining bread, cranberries and cheese. Set aside.
2Combine the milk, egg substitute, yogurt, sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl and mix well. Pour the mixture over the top of the bread, cranberries and cheese in the baking dish.
