This skinny breakfast or brunch treat is fun to make, easy to prepare and very decadent. The addition of cream cheese, jam and strawberries takes this French toast to a whole new level. You’ll save a ton of calories and fat by using reduced-fat cream cheese, reduced sugar preserves and egg whites. Each fiber rich serving is 348 calories, 6 grams of fat and 9Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. These facts are based on 1 full sandwich but a half would be very satisfying. This dish is
so yummy, tummies will be full and everyone will be very happy!
On one side of 4 slices of bread spread with 1 tablespoon cream cheese. Next, on top of cream cheese, spread each with 2 teaspoons strawberry preserves. Place ¼ cup strawberry slices on each. Top each with the remaining slice of bread to make a sandwich.
In a shallow bowl or pie plate, beat egg whites and vanilla.
Dip 2 sandwiches into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides.
Coat a large nonstick pan with cooking spray. Melt 2 teaspoons reduced-fat butter and swirl around bottom of pan. Add 2 sandwiches, cook about 3 minutes on medium-high heat until golden. Turn over and cook the undersides for about 2 minutes, until golden brown. Place cooked sandwiches on a baking sheet and keep warm in oven while
cooking the other 2 sandwiches.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 with 2 remaining sandwiches.
Transfer each sandwich to a plate. Cut each in half and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons powdered sugar and garnish with strawberry slices.
Serve immediately with a fork and knife. Enjoy!

Shopping Tips: I love Milton’s Multigrain bread. Each slice has 110 calories, 1g fat and 3g fiber. Most supermarkets sell it along with Trader Joe’s.
I used Trader Joe’s organic reduced sugar preserves. Each tablespoon has 30 calories. Knott’s Light preserves would be another great choice.
Reduced-fat whipped cream cheese comes in a tube versus a block of cream cheese.
