French Toast Sandwiches

(Gout-friendly)

Ingredients

  • 4 thin slices whole-grain bread

  • 2 large eggs (alternative: 1/2 cup egg substitute )

  • 1/4 cup skim milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese

  • 2 tablespoons apricot preserves

  • Cooking spray

  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar

  • 1/4 cup warm maple syrup

Directions

In a bowl or baking dish large enough for flat bread, beat eggs with milk and vanilla. Make 2 sandwiches with the cream cheese and apricot preserves. Put sandwiches in egg/milk/vanilla mixture, carefully turning so both sides absorb the liquid.

Lightly coat a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat to medium. Cook sandwiches until golden and the middle is heated through, turning once, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Dust lightly with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
