Stuffed French Toast!
I checked out all the recipes and I couldn’t stop drooling over the Stuffed French Toast! It looks extremely easy to make! One serving only contains 270 calories! The recipe uses fat-free cream cheese, egg white, and skim milk, which makes it a lot more waistline friendly. I’ve included the full recipe and instructions below just in case you might want to whip up a special delicious dish for your mom this weekend. I might actually treat myself with the Stuffed French Toast for dinner tonight! YUMMY!
Prep Time: 15 Min | Start to Finish: 30 Min | 2 Servings
4 slices French bread, 1/2 inch thick
2 tablespoons fat-free soft cream cheese
4 teaspoons preserves or jam (any flavor)
1 egg white or 2 tablespoons fat-free cholesterol-free egg product,
1/4 cup fat-free (skim) milk
2 teaspoons sugar
1. Spread one side of 2 slices bread with 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese. Spread one side of remaining slices with 2 teaspoons of the preserves. Place bread with cream cheese and bread with preserves together in pairs.
2. Beat egg whites, milk and sugar with wire whisk until smooth; pour into shallow bowl.
3. Spray griddle or skillet with cooking spray; heat griddle to 325° or heat skillet over medium-low heat. Dip each side of sandwich into egg mixture. Cook sandwiches 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
