No matter what time of year it is we always have strawberries. My kids love to eat them. I like to eat them too, as a snack or using them for recipes.
French toast was one of my favorite things to eat when I was a kid. Either at home or a restaurant, I loved it.
I still love it, but I don’t eat it as much. Cooked the traditional way it is not very healthy.
Sure it tastes great, most things cooked in butter or oil do. But I eliminated cooking it in all of that fat, and it still tastes great!
I also stuffed my french toast with strawberries and cream cheese. Making them into roll ups made them fun for the kids to eat.
This is a pretty quick and easy recipe to make, which is perfect for breakfast.
For the bread I used Sara Lee 45 calorie multi-grain bread. I cut off the crust, then used a rolling pin to flatten the bread.
I used reduced fat cream cheese to lighten up the filling. I mixed that with finely chopped strawberries and some sugar-free maple syrup.
I could have eaten the filling by itself it was so good!
I dipped the french toast roll ups in egg, milk and cinnamon.
I cooked them in a non-stick frying pan that I sprayed with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray. It gave them a little bit of that butter taste without any fat or extra points.
I ate my french toast roll ups with a tablespoon of sugar free maple syrup.
