Let’s get some French toast! Not a bad idea, IF you know what you’re doing.
Buying those famous freezer brands are packed with 15 grams of sugar and loaded with nearly 500 milligrams of sodium.
The Culinary goddess, Lisa Lillien with Hungry-Girl.com has a French toast hack that’ll have you sneaking snack bites from your kiddos.
1/4 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 standard-sized hot dog bun (about 130 calories)
2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread
Optional topping: sugar-free or lite pancake syrup
In a wide bowl, mix egg whites/substitute with vanilla extract and cinnamon.
Split bun in half. Cut each half widthwise into 4 pieces, leaving you with 8 “nuggets.”
Coat nuggets on all sides with egg mixture. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add butter and let it coat the bottom.
Cook nuggets, flipping occasionally, until golden brown on all sides, 3 – 4 minutes.
