Whole Wheat French Toast with Strawberry Sauce
When you think of French toast, you may think of it as a high-calorie meal, but when you use whole grain bread, skim milk and a combination of whole eggs and egg whites, you have a slimmed-down version that is equally delicious. The strawberry sauce adds an antioxidant boost and a refreshing twist for summer.
8 slices Nature’s Own 100% Whole Wheat Bread
10 medium strawberries, hulled
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 egg whites
1 cup nonfat milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons powdered sugar
Purée 6 strawberries and granulated sugar in blender until smooth; set aside. Slice the remaining 4 berries; set aside.
In a shallow medium bowl, whisk eggs, egg whites, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
Heat a 12-inch skillet or griddle, coated with nonstick cooking spray, over medium heat.
Dip 1 bread slice at a time into egg mixture, turning once to coat both sides.
Cook 4 slices at a time, 3 minutes per side, until golden brown.
To serve, place 2 slices French toast on each serving plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, drizzle with strawberry sauce and garnish with sliced berries.
