Featured Recipe: French toast sandwiches
- 4 thin slices whole-grain bread
- 2 large eggs (alternative: 1/2 cup egg substitute )
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons apricot preserves
- Cooking spray
- 2 teaspoons powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup warm maple syrup
Preheat oven to 300°F. In a bowl or baking dish large enough for flat bread, beat eggs with milk and vanilla. Make 2 sandwiches with the cream cheese and preserves. Put sandwiches in egg/milk/vanilla mixture, carefully turning so both sides absorb the liquid.
Lightly coat a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat to medium hot. Cook sandwiches until golden, turning once, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place on cookie sheet in oven to finish heating until ready to serve. Dust lightly with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
