From Hungry Girl - "AHHHHHHHHHHH! Is it breakfast or dessert? This decadent morning-meal recipe is SO easy and ridiculously delicious. PLEASE make it ASAP. You'll FLIP!" PER SERVING (one 4-inch square, about 1 cup): 204 calories, 4.25g fat, 577mg sodium, 30g carbs, 6g fiber, 8.5g sugars, 16.5g protein -- POINTS. value 4*
- 8 slices light bread, cut into cubes (40 - 45 calories each with around 2g fiber per slice)
- 4 ounces fat free cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 medium fuji apple, peeled and diced
- 1 1⁄4 cups light vanilla soymilk
- 1 cup liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Ori ginal)
- 2 tablespoons sugar-free syrup
- 2 tablespoons light butter, melted (or light buttery spread like Brummel & Brown)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon Splenda granular (to taste)
- sugar-free syrup, for dipping (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray an 8-inch by 8-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Place bread cubes evenly along the bottom of the dish.
- Sprinkle diced apple evenly over the bread.
- In a medium-large bowl, combine all other ingredients (cream cheese, soymilk, egg substitute, syrup, butter, cinnamon, and sweetener). If you like your French toast pretty sweet, add an extra packet of sweetener. Using a handheld electric mixer set to medium speed, mix until lump-free and smooth. Pour mixture over the bread and apple.
- Make sure bread is soaked in the liquid mixture. If needed, toss lightly to coat.
- Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes, until egg mixture is pretty firm and cooked through. (Be sure not to overcook, as bread may burn.) Let cool slightly and cut into quarters. If you like, serve with additional syrup for dipping. Dig in!
This was only ok for me... I plan on trying it again, with less on the milk, it was too wet to me. Not too bad, all in all, but I will have to tweek it a bit to get the right flavor, I think. I subbed regular skim milk for the light soy (yuck!) and added 1 tsp vanilla for flavor. We'll see how it comes out next time. Maybe it'll be better tomorrow, who knows!
