  • Maple-Apple Topping
  • 1 large red-skinned cooking apple, cored, quartered, and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup sugar-free or light pancake syrup
  • French Toast
  • ½ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup fat-free milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla

  • 8¾-inch-thick slices whole grain baguette-style bread (6 ounces total)

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. To prepare Maple-Apple Topping: In a small saucepan, combine cooking apple, and 2 tablespoons water. Bring to boiling over medium heat. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until apple is just tender, stirring occasionally. Add pancake syrup or until slightly thickened and heated through. Set aside.
  2. To prepare French Toast: In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Dip bread slices into egg mixture, turning to coat both sides (let soak in egg mixture about 1 minute per side).
  3. Coat an unheated large nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray. Preheat over medium heat. Place bread on hot skillet or griddle; cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Divide bread slices among four serving plates. Spoon on Maple-Apple Topping and sprinkle with pecans.
  • Tip: To toast whole nuts or large pieces, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
