Prep:
5 minutes

Cook:
15 minutes

Ingredients
 
  • 2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
  • One 2-inch-wide French baguette (about 4 oz.)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
  • 1 plum tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • Optional: salt, black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Put butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave until melted, about 15 seconds. Set aside.

Using a serrated knife, cut baguette into 16 half-inch-thick slices. (Discard the ends or reserve for another use.) Evenly place on the baking sheet.

Using a pastry brush, evenly brush bread slices with melted butter. Sprinkle with garlic powder.

Bake in the oven until warm and crispy, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. Add egg substitute and scramble until mostly cooked, about 3 minutes. Add tomato and basil and continue to scramble until fully cooked, about 1 minute.

Evenly distribute scrambled egg mixture among baked bread slices. If you like, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
