Healthy breakfast: Cinnamon French toast

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Try this healthy version of a breakfast favorite. In a small bowl, whisk 4 egg whites with 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg. Then dip 4 slices of cinnamon bread into the mixture, coating both sides. Place a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles as it hits the pan, add the bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Cook until both sides are golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes each.Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar and maple syrup on the side. Makes enough for two to enjoy.
