Healthy French Toast

Our slimmed-down take on this Sunday morning family favorite is practically saintly. Using low-fat milk and egg whites gives it half the fat of traditional French toast. Plus, it's a cinch to whip up!

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.

In a pie plate, beat the egg whites, egg, milk, salt and vanilla with a whisk until blended. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 teaspoon butter or trans-fat-free margarine on medium heat.

Dip the bread slices, one at a time, in the egg mixture, pressing the bread lightly to coat both sides well. Place 3 or 4 slices in the skillet, and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until lightly browned on the second side, 3 to 4 minutes.

Transfer the French toast to a cookie sheet; keep warm in the oven. Repeat with remaining butter or margarine, bread slices and egg mixture.
