|Apple-Stuffed French Toast|
I made the husband a nice French toast breakfast and one for myself, as well, but I amped it up a little bit. Of course I offered to make the husband's breakfast just like mine, but he really wasn't interested. He liked his simple french toast just fine, and now we're ready to take on the day. I'm just hoping not everyone else and their brother has decided to go to the movies today, as well.
|The husband will tell you this didn't look so good, but I thought it did!|
Slightly Inspired by Christine Avanti
1/2 medium apple, chopped
1 tablespoon Neufchatel cream cheese
2 slices Nature's Own Whole Wheat Bread
3 egg whites
a dash or two of cinnamon
a splash of vanilla
1 tablespoon raw honey
Chop about 1/4 of the apple into thin slices. (Not all of it will fit on the bread, so you can eat the rest on the side.)
Sprinkle a little cinnamon on the apple and heat it in the microwave for a few seconds.
Heat the griddle over medium heat, and scramble your egg whites with a little cinnamon and vanilla.
Coat one slice of bread with egg and place it onto the griddle. Top the bread with the cream cheese and thinly sliced apples. Coat the second slice of bread and place it on top of the first slice, making a nice French toast sandwich.
Toast until it's nicely browned, and top with honey.
