A healthier take on a breakfast favorite

By Mayo Clinic Staff

This healthier version of French toast makes enough for two. In a small bowl, whisk 4 egg whites with 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg. Dip 4 slices of cinnamon bread into the mixture, coating both sides. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Using a nonstick frying pan, cook over medium heat until both sides are golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Serve with powdered sugar or maple syrup.
