Not-So-Sweet French Toast

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Makes 2 servings


  • 6 small slices of bread (I used Udi’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread, which I defrosted as I keep it in the freezer.)
  • 2 large eggs + 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup half and half (or any milk you have in the fridge.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (if you like things sweet, use 1 tablespoon.)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (literally a tiny pinch)
  • A few sprinkles of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons non-fat plain Greek yogurt, like Fage
  • 1 tablespoon jam or jelly
  • Fresh fruit
  • Non-stick cooking spray


  • In a medium sized mixing bowl whisk together eggs, half & half, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
  • Dip bread into mixture, completely coating both sides and soaking for about 30 seconds. Put coated bread on a plate and allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Over medium-low heat, spray a medium sized pan with cooking spray.
  • Place 2-4 slices in pan at a time and cook until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes on both sides.
  • Plate with three pieces of toast per person. Top with 1 tablespoon of Greek yogurt and 1/2 tablespoon jam. Serve with fruit. I used blood oranges and pineapple. It was the perfect combination of tart and sweet – semi-sweet if you will.
