Healthier Stuffed French Toast Recipe


Sundays are great for relaxing breakfasts...

This morning we took it easy and decided to get caught up on some French Open coverage. So while we watched tennis I decided to make French Toast...

No I did not plan it that way...

The thing is I've discovered how versatile Greek Yogurt can be. Its a newer ingredient that is finding its way into more recipes and I've incorporated it into more of mine.

And since I wanted to make French Toast with no cream cheese I decided to use some 0% Greek Yogurt and homemade strawberry jam as the filling. It was a healthier option to the traditional stuffed french toast and perfect for a lazy Sunday morning.



Stuffed French Toast
(Makes about 2 servings)

4 slices (1 inch) french bread
3 eggs
1 cup 0% Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup Strawberry Jam

Mix the yogurt and jam together in a bowl. Spread mixture generously between two slices and make a sandwich. In a separate bowl beat the eggs. Dip the sandwich on both sides in the egg mixture. Place in a heated frying pan on medium for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

  1. That's an awesome idea. You get the lovely creaminess but with a whole lot less calories. Mmmm, this will have me eating French toast a whole lot more often now that there's less guilt. ;)
