Strawberries and Cream Stuffed French Toast

Ingredients

  • 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 tip
  • 8 teaspoons reduced sugar strawberry preserves, see shopping tip
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced thin
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoons reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light spread
  • 8 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • Strawberries slices for garnish

Directions

1. 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.
2. In a shallow bowl or pie plate, beat egg whites and vanilla.
3. Dip 2 sandwiches into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides.
4. Coat a large nonstick pan with cooking spray. Melt 2 teaspoons 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.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with 2 remaining sandwiches.
6. Transfer each sandwich to a plate. Cut each in half and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons powdered sugar and garnish with strawberry slices.
7. Serve immediately with a fork and knife. Enjoy!
