CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Big Banana-Berry French Toast
French Toast Revolution!
Regarding the original dish, IHOP's website claims, "Nothing tops this fruit-topped favorite." We took that as a challenge. And after tasting our swap and admiring its stats (not to mention its beauteous appearance!), we DEFINITELY disagree...
1 tbsp. low-sugar strawberry preserves
3/4 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
3 slices light bread
1/2 small banana, thinly sliced
1 tsp. powdered sugar
1/4 cup Fat Free Reddi-wip
In a medium bowl, stir preserves until smooth. Add sliced strawberries, and stir to coat.
In a wide bowl, mix egg substitute, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.
Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat.
Add butter and let it coat the bottom. Meanwhile, coat bread on all sides with egg mixture.
Cook egg-coated bread until golden brown, 1 - 2 minutes per side.
If you like, diagonally slice each piece in half. Plate French toast and top with strawberry mixture and sliced banana. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, top with Reddi-wip, and enjoy!
