    Smile Cinnamon French toast


    Cinnamon French toast

    Dietitian's tip: French toast is typically made by dipping bread in an egg-milk mixture and then frying it until golden brown. This low-fat version uses cinnamon bread, but any type of bread would work.

    SERVES 2

    Ingredients
    4 egg whites
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    4 slices cinnamon bread
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoons powdered sugar
    1/4 cup maple syrup

    Directions

    In a small bowl, combine the egg whites, vanilla and nutmeg. Whisk to mix evenly. Dip the bread into the egg mixture, coating both sides.

    Place a nonstick frying pan or griddle over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles as it hits the pan, add the bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook until both sides are golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

    Place 2 slices of French toast on warmed individual plates. Add 1 teaspoon powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons maple syrup to each. Serve immediately.

    I always make french toast out of Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin bread. Def. skip the powdered sugar in favro fo some splenda and, natty pb, and sugar free maple syrup. Add more egg whites on the side and you got a nice breakfast!:bb2:

    I eat something similar almost daily. I replace the sugar with sucralose and leave out the maple syrup and use more egg whites. I finished eating some while reading this post. Itís even pretty good without even cooking it (soggy bread!) Great for work too, I cook them a little longer then normal so its not wet and eat them at my desk at work. That way I can get a meal every 2 hours from morning to night.
