This dish can easily be made dairy and egg free!
4 slices whole grain bread
2 large eggs (alternative: 1/2 c egg substitute )
1/4 c. skim milk
1/2 t vanilla extract
2 T reduced fat cream cheese (alternative: 2 T vegan cream cheese)
2 T apricot preserves
2 t powdered sugar
1/4 c. warm maple syrup
Preheat oven to 300°F. In a bowl or baking dish large enough for flat bread, beat eggs with milk and vanilla. Make 2 sandwiches with the cream cheese and preserves. Put sandwiches in egg/milk/vanilla mixture, carefully turning so both sides absorb the liquid.
Lightly coat a nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray and heat to medium hot. Cook sandwiches until golden, turning once, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place on cookie sheet in oven to finish heating until ready to serve. Dust lightly with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup.
