1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
2 slices multi-grain bread, with crusts*
Non-fat vegetable cooking spray
Your favorite low-calorie condiments
* I like to use breads with multi-grains, raisins, and/or nuts in them. It makes the French Toast more nutritional and very tasty. Fresh bread will absorb batter more quickly than stale bread. In other words, you can use any type of bread you choose.
My formula is - 1 egg per each slice of bread. This way it is very easy to determine how to increase or decrease the recipe. 1/2 cup egg substitute.
In 9- x 9-inch baking pan or dish, combine the eggs, vanilla extract, and cinnamon; beat with a fork until well mixed.
Layer the bread slices into the egg mixture and let soak about 5 minutes or until most of egg mixture is absorbed, turning once.
On a heavy skillet (I like to use my cast-iron griddle) with the non-fat vegetable cooking spray, place prepared bread in a single layer and cook until the bread is golden brown and crusted on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn with bread and cook until the second side is golden, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. NOTE: I like to use low heat to cook my French toast.
Place on individual serving plates, and serve with your choice of low-calorie condiments.
Makes 2 slices French Toast.
Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast (low calorie):
This is my favorite way to eat French Toast when I am dieting (also when not dieting). Very filling and so satisfying!
1 slice prepared French Toast (prepare French Toast as per above directions)
1 teaspoon reduced-fat peanut butter
2 teaspoons reduced-sugar sweet orange marmalade (I like to use Smuckers)*
* Non-sugar jam or jelly may be substituted. I personally like a little sugar in my jams and jellies. Your choice.
On your hot slice of prepared French toast, spread the peanut butter. Spread the orange marmalade over the peanut butter. Eat and enjoy!
