No Fuss Microwave Egg White French Toast

While chefs in fancy restaurants may be labeled “creative” when whipping up recipes, a renal dietitian uses that same creativity to help kidney patients enjoy their healthy diets. DaVita dietitian Susan from Oregon shares her delicious No Fuss Microwave Egg White French Toast— a fantastic low sugar, low fat breakfast that can also be chilled and eaten like bread pudding. Double yum!

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.
