Recipe Sunday: Healthy French Toast

Earlier in the week Hubby and I saw The Chew and they were cooking all kinds of great breakfast favorites.  Since then French Toast has been on my mind.  Will have to make some this morning.

Healthy French Toast



  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup low-fat (1-percent) milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons butter or trans-fat-free margarine
  • 8 slices firm whole-wheat bread


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.In a pie plate, beat the egg whites, egg, milk, salt and vanilla with a whisk until blended. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 teaspoon butter or trans-fat-free margarine on medium heat.Dip the bread slices, one at a time, in the egg mixture, pressing the bread lightly to coat both sides well. Place 3 or 4 slices in the skillet, and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until lightly browned on the second side, 3 to 4 minutes.Transfer the French toast to a cookie sheet; keep warm in the oven. Repeat with remaining butter or margarine, bread slices and egg mixture.
