One slice of French toast oozing with cream cheese and drizzled with melted fruit spread does not have many more calories or grams of fat than a bowl of most breakfast cereals.

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. In small bowl, combine cream cheese and 2 tablespoons spreadable fruit. Using serrated knife, form pocket in each bread slice by making a horizontal cut halfway between top and bottom crust, slicing not quite all the way through. Fill each pocket with about 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture (see Tips).
  2. In small bowl, combine egg whites, egg, milk, vanilla and apple pie spice. Lightly coat nonstick griddle with cooking spray; heat over medium heat.
  3. Dip stuffed bread slices into egg mixture, coating both sides. Place bread slices on hot griddle. Cook about 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning once.
  4. Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat ½ cup spreadable fruit until melted, stirring frequently. Serve over French toast.
  • To make ahead: Stuff each bread slice, and place in an airtight container. Cover; refrigerate overnight. In the morning, prepare egg mixture and cook.
