Another in my series of low fat breakfast recipes, French toast is one of my favorite weekend breakfast treats. If you’re concerned about fat and cholesterol, use egg substitute or a combination of eggs and egg whites in place of whole eggs. Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
8 slices of day-old sliced whole grain bread
1/2 cup egg substitute (equivalent to 2 eggs)
3/4 cup nonfat milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Combine egg substitute, milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a wide bowl or dish. Dip bread in egg mixture ensuring both sides are soaked. Heat griddle or nonstick skillet, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, on medium-high. Alternatively, heat oven to 450 degrees and spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray
Place bread slices in skillet or griddle, or on cookie sheet and cook until both sides of bread are golden brown. About 3 minutes each side.
Top with confectioner’s sugar and fresh fruit or maple syrup.
