Helpful hints

  • Bring cream cheese to room temperature so it is easier to spread.
  • Serving suggestions: drizzle with syrup, garnish with fresh fruit and whipped cream or dust with powdered sugar.
  • This recipe is a good source of protein and calories, a great choice for a high-energy breakfast. Try this different spin on French Toast. It is a good use for leftover bread. Also, preparing this recipe the night before leaves you with nothing left to do in the morning except bake and serve. It’s perfect for brunch.
  • Compare breads and select the lower sodium brand.

This is delicious with fresh sliced strawberries to replace the jelly. Just give it a try and you will be hooked.

This has a lot of sodium for just one serving, for renal patients and non renal patients. Although it does look delicious. Dietitian comment: Most of the sodium is from the 2 slices bread and cream cheese. If you are limiting sodium to 2000 mg/day this recipe still works for 1/3 of your allowance if complemented by other low sodium foods in the meal.

with 47 grams in carbs a diabetic person will have his/her sugar gone in to the sky. Dietitian comment: It depends on the person's carbohydrate goal for their meals. You could use sugar-free fruit spread instead of the jelly to further reduce carbs.

This is an excellent one dish breakfast or any other meal. I made it last night and baked it this morning, took one out and put blueberries on it and a tablespoon of sugarfree syrup (needed more) and it was a most satisfying breakfast. Fantastic! I froze the other other seven individually for future meals.

Pts liked this a lot, teammates enjoyed it also. It's easy because you put it together ahead of time and bake it the morning of. We cut it into finger sandwiches.
