Helpful hints

  • Serve warm as French toast or chill and eat as bread pudding.
  • Egg whites provide excellent quality protein with minimal phosphorus or fat.
  • If desired substitute 2 whole eggs, beaten for 1/2-cup egg white. This change will increase nutrients to  288 calories, 15 g fat, 434 mg cholesterol and 226 mg phosphorus; sodium is reduced to 353 mg.
  • If desired, substitute natural maple syrup or cinnamon sugar for lite or sugar-free syrup.
  • This recipe works well with an English muffin half instead of a slice of bread.
