Thick slices of French toast hide a delightful mixture of sweetened and whipped cottage, ricotta and cream cheeses that are flavored with extracts to your preference. Use challah or French bread for best results.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 6 (2 inch thick) slices French bread
- 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese, whipped
- 2 tablespoons lowfat cream cheese
- 2 teaspoons white sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups egg substitute
- 1/4 cup evaporated milk
Cut a pocket in each slice of bread. Open carefully
In a large bowl, combine the ricotta, cottage cheese and cream cheese. Add the sugar and flavoring extract and beat until smooth. Spread the mixture evenly into each bread pocket.
Beat together the egg substitutes and milk. Dip the slices of bread in the egg mixture.
Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Cook the toast on each side for about 3 to 4 minutes per side until golden brown.
