January 02, 2015 at 9:19 AM

Breakfast is traditionally the most important meal of the day, but don't just force yourself to have a pastry and coffee.  Make it a tasty mental retreat by transporting your mind to the streets of Paris with this recipe for high-protein French toast.

Ingredients

4 large eggs, slightly beaten

2/3 cup original classic Rice Dream

2 tablespoons Just Whites

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

5 slices whole wheat bread

* You will need two spatulas to avoid cross-contamination with raw eggs:  Spatula #1 is for handling the bread soaked in raw eggs and spatula #2 is for handling cooked food.


Preparation

1. Combine eggs, rice beverage and Just Whites. Mix with a fork or whisk until eggs are fully beaten and Just Whites are dissolved. Transfer to a shallow pan.

2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles on the pan, it is ready to use.

3. Soak bread in egg mixture until saturated.

4. Using Spatula #1, place soaked bread on hot frying pan.

5. Cook for several minutes until browned on the bottom.

6. Flip with Spatula #2, and continue to cook until browned on the second side.

7. Enjoy with cinnamon, syrup or sugar-free topping (not included in the nutritional information).

Helpful tips: Just Whites is available in the baking needs section of many supermarkets, near the flour and sugar. To avoid excess calcium and phosphorus, use only “original classic” Rice Dream, not “enriched.”

Remember that eggs must be cooked to be safe. Avoid cross-contamination with raw eggs.

Recipe also tested with vanilla-flavored whey protein powder in place of Just Whites. You can experiment at home with different kinds of protein powder. Ask your dietitian for more information.
