Good morning! (Well, it’s morning somewhere) And what better way to start a morning than with a delicious, filling breakfast? I don’t know about you, but I grew up loving French toast. I would usually have it every day at all-inclusive resorts on vacation, and then beg my mom to make it at home afterwards.
So, naturally, once my June Cleaver instincts kicked in, I wanted to master French toast in my own household. So I put on my little homemaker apron, found a great Reduced Fat French Toast recipe right here, and so I figured I would try it, with a variation or two in there.
So, here are the ingredients you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 2/3 cup skim milk
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 4 slices bread
1. Heat up a nonstick pan on medium heat.
2. In a wide bowl, mix together egg whites, skim milk, cinnamon, and vanilla.
4. Lightly soak the slices in the egg mixture on both sides, and cook in the pan, for about a minute on each side (sorry, I forgot to take a picture of this step).
5. Plate the French toast, and sprinkle with some icing sugar for added yumminess!
I used a bit more egg and milk, since I find the mixture tends to run a little low as I near the end, and I added more cinnamon (we looove cinnamon!). I had some already cooked bacon in the fridge, so I served that as well.
Super easy and tasty breakfast! And since I like sleeping in on weekends, this was quick enough to whip together while I was still only about half awake. For a perfect morning, my darling husband made us some big mugs of hot coffee! Such a great way to start a day full of awesome!
