Carrot French Toast

(2 servings)

  • 4 slices of bread - wheat or white
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot (about 2 medium carrots)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 Tablespoon skim milk
  • 1 Tablespoon walnut pieces - finely chopped
  • 2 green onions - finely chopped
  • butter or margarine - for frying
In a large mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients except for bread and butter.

Heat a skillet or fry pan to medium-high and melt butter or margarine (about a Tablespoon) for frying.

Dip slices of bread into the carrot mixture. Cook until browned on both sides. Add more butter or margarine if cooking multiple batches.

Serve warm with a pat of butter. I like maple syrup too. My husband does not.

A savory take on traditional French toast from India. Try mixing sweet and savory by using a sweet topping like maple syrup. It's a surprisingly delicious combination.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank casey for this recipe.
