April 2, 2017

This recipe came to me one day because I just wanted a simple breakfast dish you can pop in the oven, walk away and then enjoy when it’s ready.. I was in serious food heaven when I tried one of these apple cinnamon french toast sandwiches, every bite tasted better than the next and I did’nt want it to end 😉 They are also really filling and one is plenty.. I promise the family will love this delicious french toast creation and it is so easy to make! Serves 4 at 6 smart points each (not incl the syrup) and you can easily increase it to serve 6 if necessary.

Serves: 4
 
6SP/5PP per serving
Ingredients
  • 8 slices of low calorie bread, such as Sara Lee, here in Canada I used the new PC low calorie bread.
  • 2 apples, peeled and diced
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1⅓ cup liquid egg whites (in the carton)
  • 1 cup 1% milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a casserole type dish with some cooking spray, I used a 9x13 but you can use whatever size will fit your bread.
  2. Mix your diced apples and 1 tsp cinnamon (leave other tsp aside) in a microwave safe bowl, cover tightly with some saran wrap and microwave for about 3 minutes, then stir well.
  3. Lay out 4 slices of your bread in your dish, top evenly with your apples, then place your other 4 slices of bread on top to make sandwiches.
  4. In a large bowl or a large measuring cup whisk your eggs and egg whites together, and in your milk and 1 tsp cinnamon, as an alternative you can sprinkle the cinnamon on the bread before pouring your egg mixture.
  5. Pour your egg mixture over your sandwiches cover them as well as you can, in my case since I used the bigger dish I did have mixture that went out into the ends of the dish, but it will all still be part of the serving.
  6. Bake in oven for approx 45 minutes, make sure eggs are cooked.
  7. Serve with some syrup, I used the ED.Smith no sugar added syrup, 2Tbsp is 1SP..
  8. Makes 4 servings, to make 6 just increase your ingredients by half (so 12 slices of bread, 3 apples, 3 tsp cinnamon, 6 eggs, 2 cups egg whites and 1.5 cups milk)
  9. Each servings is 6 smart points or 5 points plus (not incl syrup)
