Shopping Tips

I love Milton’s Multigrain bread.  Each slice has 110 calories, 1g fat, and 3g fiber. Most supermarkets sell it along with Trader Joe’s.
I used Trader Joe’s organic reduced sugar preserves.  Each tablespoon has 30 calories. Knott’s Light preserves would be another great choice.
Reduced-fat whipped cream cheese comes in a tube versus a block of cream cheese.

Ingredients
  

Ingredients for French Toast:

  • 8 slices whole-wheat bread or multi-grain bread, I used Milton’s Multi-Grain bread, see shopping tip
  • 4 tablespoons reduced-fat whipped cream cheese, see shopping tips
  • 8 teaspoons reduced-sugar strawberry preserves, see shopping tips
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced thin
  • 6 egg whites
  • teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoons reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light spread

Ingredients for Topping:

  • 8 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • Strawberries slices for garnish

Instructions
 

  • On one side of 4 slices of bread spread with 1 tablespoon cream cheese.  Next, on top of cream cheese, spread each with 2 teaspoons strawberry preserves.  Place ¼ cup strawberry slices on each.  Top each with the remaining slice of bread to make a sandwich.
  • In a shallow bowl or pie plate, beat egg whites and vanilla.
  • Dip 2 sandwiches into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides.
  • Coat a large nonstick pan with cooking spray.  Melt 2 teaspoons of reduced-fat butter and swirl around bottom of pan.  Add 2 sandwiches, cook about 3 minutes on medium-high heat until golden.  Turn over and cook the undersides for about 2 minutes, until golden brown.  Place cooked sandwiches on a baking sheet and keep warm in oven while cooking the other 2 sandwiches.
  • Repeat steps 3 and 4 with 2 remaining sandwiches.
  • Transfer each sandwich to a plate.  Cut each in half and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons powdered sugar and garnish with strawberry slices.
  • Serve immediately with a fork and knife.  Enjoy!
