8 servings


  • ½ cup fat-free cream cheese (about 5 ounces)

  • 2 tablespoons strawberry or apricot spreadable fruit

  • 8 1-inch slices French bread

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

  • ¾ cup fat-free milk

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla

  • teaspoon apple pie spice

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • ½ cup strawberry or apricot spreadable fruit


  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 1/2 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
