Healthy French Toast

This past weekend I went to visit my family in Orlando, and I was in charge of cooking breakfast. I scoured the pantry and fridge and found lots of good stuff! I found bread, eggs, blueberries and orange juice…french toast it is!


French Toast with Blueberry Orange Sauce

French Toast
4 slices Bread (use your fav!)
3 Eggs
2/3 cup Skim Milk
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Blueberry Orange Sauce
2/3 cup Blueberries
2 tbsp Sugar
1/2 cup Orange Juice
1/2 tbsp Butter
1 tsp cornstarch

Start the sauce first. Place blueberries, sugar and orange juice in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil then set to a simmer for 5 10 minutes (until sauce is deep purple-ish color).

While sauce is simmering, combine the eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla. Heat a skillet on medium heat and spray with butter spray. Soak each piece of bread for about 5 seconds on each side then place on the heated skillet. Cook until golden brown on each side, approximately 5 minutes total.

To finish the sauce, put on low heat and add the butter. Then, if you need to thicken it more, combine the cornstarch and 1 tsp of water and mix together. Then add to the sauce. Continue to stir until thickened, which takes 1 2 minutes (OPTIONAL: Add some freshly sliced bananas). Then Voilafresh French toast for two! I also had my French toast with some Turkey Sausage, it was delish!
