Ingredients

butter flavour cooking spray

2 spray(s)

pear(s)

4 small, ripe, unpeeled, cored, seeded and diced

unpacked brown sugar

1 Tbsp

part-skim ricotta cheese

1 cup(s)

ground cinnamon

½ tsp

sugar

2 tsp

whole wheat bread

8 slice(s)

regular liquid egg substitute

cup(s)

fat free creamer

cup(s), such as fat-free 1/2 and 1/2

Instructions

  1. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add pears and brown sugar; sauté over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until pears are tender and juicy (about 5 minutes). Remove from skillet and set aside. Wipe skillet clean.
  2. Combine ricotta cheese, cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and stir well. Spread 1/4 cup of cheese mixture over each of 4 bread slices. Top with remaining 4 bread slices to form sandwiches.
  3. Stir egg substitute and half-and-half together in a shallow bowl.
  4. Recoat skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
  5. Dip each sandwich into egg mixture and turn to coat. Place 2 sandwiches at a time in skillet and cook for 4 minutes per side, or until browned. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  6. To serve, cut each sandwich in half and spoon pears on top. Yields 1 sandwich and about 1/2 cup of pears per serving.
