Captain Crunch Crusted Stuffed French Toast made A Little Healthier
So last week I decided to try a new breakfast option for my Saturday morning. Usually, every Saturday I make very health conscious pancakes for breakfast (Sometimes not that health conscious at all LOL). This Saturday I wanted to make something different, but I had to perfect the idea before I pitch it to my family for breakfast because my Wife and boys will definitely let me know if they like it or not. So, I decided to do a trial run on Wednesday, to make sure I get my flavors right. I was happy with the outcome, and knew what I needed to do to make it pop. So Saturday morning I woke up early, start prepping my ingredients, and went all in. Final results is depicted above, and the family loved every bit of it. My wife doesn't like white creamy stuff, so the cream cheese in the middle wasn't her fave as far as presentation, but flavor was on point.
2 slices Pepperidge Farm 80 calorie cranberry swirl bread
1/2 Captain Crunch Cereal
2 tbsp Greek Yogurt cream cheese
1/2 tbsp Truvia brown sugar
5 egg whites and 1 whole egg
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut almond milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Bananas and raspberries for garnishment
Mix the cream cheese and sugar together
Place the captain crunch in a ziploc bag and pound it to crums
Blend the egg whites, whole egg, cinnamon, and vanilla extract together
Scoop 1 tbsp of the cream cheese mixture and place it in the middle of one slice of bread, then grab the other slice and place them together, but don't smash them. You want to keep the cream cheese in the middle of the bread.
Dip the bread into the egg mixture and make sure you cover every area
Then dip it into the captain crunch crums and cover all areas.
Place your grill pan on a medium heat, and grease with 1tbsp of olive oil
Place the french toast in the pan, and brown all angles even the outer crust. This will seal the breads as one.
When finish garnish with bananas or whatever fruit you desire. No syrup required, but you can add the remaining cream cheese on top for extra sweetness and appeal
