Cook Time: 6 minutes
Ingredients for Stuffed French Toast:
2 whole wheat sandwich thins, I used Oroweat, see shopping tips
2 tablespoons fat free cream cheese, see shopping tips
2 teaspoons reduced sugar blueberry preserves, see shopping tips
½ cup fresh blueberries or frozen and thawed, sliced in half
1 egg white
1 teaspoon reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light spread
Ingredients for Topping:
½ teaspoon powdered sugar
1. Spread the bottom inside piece of each sandwich thin with 1 tablespoon cream cheese. On top of cream cheese, spread 1 teaspoon blueberry preserves on each. Place ¼ cup sliced blueberries on top of preserves. Top each with the remaining sandwich thin to create a sandwich.
2. Add the egg white to a shallow bowl. Dip both sandwiches into the egg white, making sure to coat both sides.
3. Coat a large nonstick pan with cooking spray. Melt 1 teaspoon reduced-fat butter and swirl around bottom of pan. Add 2 sandwiches, cook about 2½ to 3 minutes on medium-high heat, until golden brown. Using a spatula, turn over and cook the undersides for about 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.
4. Sprinkle top of each with powdered sugar. Plate each and serve with a fork and knife.
Makes 2 servings (each serving, 1 full sandwich)
Oroweat Sandwich Thins can be found in most large supermarkets. One sandwich thin has 100 calories, 1g fat and 5g fiber. They come in several flavors with the same nutrition facts. Use your favorite. I used Trader Joe’s organic reduced sugar blueberry preserves. Each tablespoon has only 30 calories. If you can’t find a reduced sugar jam, use regular. This recipe calls for such a small amount that the adjustment will not make much of a difference. In addition, as I mentioned, if you can’t find blueberry, strawberry, blackberry or raspberry preserves will taste yummy, too.
Fat-free cream cheese is available in a tube or block of cheese.
If you’re making more than two sandwiches, place the cooked sandwiches on a baking sheet and keep them warm in oven while preparing the others. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.
