Crunchy Stuffed French Toast (High Fiber)

Crunchy Stuffed French Toast (High Fiber)

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 8 slices whole grain bread
  • 4 Tablespoons light cream cheese
  • 4 teaspoons low-sugar orange marmalade
  • 2 large eggs + 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups bran flakes cereal
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
Spread 4 slices of bread with cream cheese. Spread the other 4 slices with the marmalade. Combine to make 4 sandwiches.

Whisk the whole egg, egg whites, orange juice and zest, vanilla and brown sugar together in a bowl. Place the bran flakes in a ziploc bag and crush lightly. Pour the flakes onto a plate. Dip both sides of each sandwich into the egg mixture then in the crumbs, pressing the crumbs lightly into the bread.

Heat 1 Tbsp. of each oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the sandwiches in 2 batches (3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and crisp.)

Slice the sandwiches crosswise into triangle. Let cool slightly before serving - as the filling can get quite hot.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar or serve with honey or maple syrup if desired.

This recipe works well with any flavor of jam!

What do you think of Crunchy Stuffed French Toast (High Fiber)?
From GF Finder

I'd like to make this with a gluten-free bread, but I haven't found any good wheat-free bread recipes yet (they seem too gritty or just, something's wrong). I have been looking because my mother is gluten intolerant. Will keep looking, for both of you, and hope that anyone reading this may be able to help.
