This is a delicious twist to the traditional french toast that is a family favorite. Instead of stopping with the bread, why not take it a step further by adding the pb&j? Try sprinkling a little confectioners’ sugar over the French toast just before serving.
Peanut Butter & Jelly French Toast Recipe
8 slices whole grain bread
1/2 cup egg substitute (or 2 large eggs)
1/2 cup reduced-fat milk
1 teaspoon butter
4 tablespoons peanut butter, divided
4 tablespoons grape jelly, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or more to taste)
4 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
Toast 4 slices of the bread in toaster. Whisk eggs and milk in medium bowl until well blended. Toast remaining bread slices.
Melt butter in large nonstick saut pan on medium-high 1-2 minutes. Spread 1 tablespoon peanut butter on one slice of bread. Spread 1 tablespoon jelly on another slice of bread. Assemble slices to form a sandwich. Repeat with remaining bread slices.
Dip 2 of the sandwiches into egg mixture (coating both sides evenly); let excess mixture drip back into bowl. Place sandwiches in pan; cook 1 minute on each side or until golden. Repeat with remaining 2 sandwiches. Cut each sandwich in half; sprinkle with cinnamon. Top with maple syrup and serve.
