To make life easy, you can cook this French toast before everyone shows up for breakfast. Place a wire rack over a baking sheet and set in a 200°F oven. As batches are done, place them on the rack; keep warm up to 30 minutes. If you’ve got fresh berries, serve them along with the sauce.

Ingredients

Unsweetened frozen strawberries

¼ cup(s), very coarsely chopped

Water

8 fl oz

Sugar

1 tbsp(s)

Egg(s)

4 item(s)

Low-fat milk

¾ cup(s)

Vanilla extract

1 tsp(s)

Ground cinnamon

¼ tsp(s)

Whole wheat bread

8 slice(s), or multigrain

Canola oil

2 tsp(s)

Instructions

  1. To make sauce, combine strawberries and water in small saucepan and set over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until berries are thawed and saucy, about 2 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in sugar until dissolved. Set aside.
  2. To make French toast, beat eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in large shallow bowl. Dip bread, one slice at a time, into egg mixture until well coated on both sides.
  3. Brush oil on griddle or over bottom of very large nonstick skillet and set over medium heat. Cook French toast, in batches, until deep golden, about 2 minutes per side, transferring to plate as it is done, covering to keep warm. Place 2 pieces of French toast on each of 4 plates and spoon sauce on top.
  4. Serving size: 2 slices French toast and about 1/4 cup sauce

Notes

Double the strawberry sauce and put extras in the fridge to layer with plain fat-free Greek yogurt for easy breakfast parfaits.
