Experts say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But it can be hard to make something that is satisfying. In other words, sometimes a breakfast bar just doesn't do it.
In this House Works, Chef Judy Gilliard joins us in a Schaefer's kitchen to make a breakfast classic...French Toast. See how you can do it quickly and with a healthy edge.
4 whole eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup milk, 1% low-fat
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 slices raisin bread, extra thick
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup cottage cheese, 2% fat, whipped
1 cup yogurt cheese, Greek style
1/4 cup raw sugar
1 cup berries, in season
Mix all ingredients (except the bread) together in a flat bowl that will hold one slice of bread. Dip each piece of bread in egg mixture, making sure the piece of bread is soaked. Brown bread in large skillet sprayed with non-stick coating. Mix cottage cheese, yogurt and sugar together in food processor and whip until very smooth. Spoon over French Toast and top with berries. You can also top with melted butter and maple syrup or vanilla yogurt and fresh berries.
