A Surprise-Inside French Toast

A Surprise-Inside French Toast

19

"Stuffed French toast with a creamy filling is good paired with a fibrous fruit such as a 1/2 cup fresh raspberries. Note: This French toast is high in sodium, primarily because of the cheeses. For a lower-sodium dish, substitute no-salt cheeses if you can find them. You can also try substituting orange, almond or strawberry extract for the vanilla. This recipe is from The WEBB Cooks, articles and recipes by Robin Webb, courtesy of the American Diabetes Association."

I'm not diabetic, but I need a low-fat diet. This feels like an indulgence, but it's actually good for you, especially with the fruit!

We thought it was pretty good, my very picky 12 yr. old liked it a lot. I used 2 eggs and a little low-fat milk in place of the egg substitute, which is quite expensive. 3 cups would be a lot ...

SOUNDS GREAT FOR SUNDAY MORNING COOK OUT. THINK I WILL SUBSTITUTE REAL EGGS AND HALF AND HALF FOR THE MILK.

This was FANTASTIC. I used Challah bread instead of french bread, and half and half instead of the evaporated milk. Served with fresh raspberries, this is better than most anything you could get...
