Sometimes I feel like something savory for breakfast, but this morning I wanted something sweet. As I was looking in my fridge, I didn’t have time to make pancakes, or something more complicated, but I thought about french toast. Instead of using bread though, I used a 100 calorie skinny bagel.
And I wanted a little crunch factor, so after dipping the bagel in the egg I then dredged it with 1/4 cup of crushed Cornflakes. Start to finish was 10 minutes!
1 skinny bagel
1 tsp. country crock spreadable margarine
1 tsp. brown sugar
splash of vanilla extract
In a small skillet, I melted the margarine and the brown sugar. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, I beat one egg and added a little of the vanilla extract.
Take the outside of the bagel, dip it in the egg mixture, then dredge it in the crushed Cornflakes making sure to reserve enough for the other half of the bagel.
Place Cornflake side down in the skillet, add the banana and the other half of the bagel.
Flip once the bottom side gets browned and flip and continue cooking. It only takes a few minutes per side.
The verdict? Fantastic! The brown sugar/Cornflakes made a crispy sugary crust on the outside, the banana’s were softened on the inside. I’m glad I made only one because I definitely could have eaten another!
