This is from the Foodfit website. I haven't tried it but wanted to see what the nutritional facts REALLY are, i think they might be a little ahead of themselves with the nutritional facts. I will be trying this recipe anyway though, one reviewer said," It was like eating warm apple pie, I will definately try it again." ...hope its as good as she said it was!!
For the apple sizzle
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups peeled cored and sliced apples
- 3⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 1 dash nutmeg
For the French toast
- 3 large eggs
- 2 cups skim milk
- 3⁄8 cup sugar (although one reviewer felt the maple syrup was enough, and did not add this sugar)
- 3⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 1⁄4 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 12 slices bread, slightly stale (multigrain would be a healthier choice...)
- Prepare the apple sizzle: In a small skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
- Add the fruit and cook until it begins to soften slightly, about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the maple syrup and nutmeg.
- Bring to a boil, set aside and keep warm.
- For the French toast: Whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla until thoroughly mixed.
- (This can be done ahead and refrigerated overnight.) Spray a griddle or large frying pan with non-stick spray and heat over medium-high heat.
- Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture until moistened.
- Place the soaked slices on the griddle.
- Discard any excess egg mixture.
- When the bottoms are golden brown, flip with a spatula and brown the other side.
- Serve the French toast topped with the apple sizzle.
