Spiced French Toast with Warm Apple Topping
I love French Toast but I always considered it to be a weekend or holiday meal till I tried this simplified version that makes an easy and healthy weekday breakfast. I have altered the basic French Toast recipe to include some spices and a yummy apple topping instead of syrup.
Since my husband and I have retired breakfast is our time of day to sit together and have a good meal, read the newspaper and start our day. Breakfast is one of our favorite times of the day, but if we don't watch out it can also be a time to add more calories than we really need. I try to vary our menu and alter recipes to include healthy versions.
In this recipe I use a lower calorie bread, a liquid egg product and skim milk. I then add flavor with some spices and when it is finished top it off with some warm chunky applesauce.
Some days I use blueberries instead of the applesauce. Just heat a half cup of blueberries in the microwave for about 1 minute and you have a wonderful sauce for your French toast.
