French Toast with Nutella & Banana

20150808_104934This variation of French Toast is delicious!!

I got this idea from The Chew  TV program and made it from my recollection.

I believe they used white bread, and I only had 100% whole wheat.

They rolled it out a little, and I forgot that step, so I mashed it down. If rolled, it would have closed and stayed closed more tightly I think.

I spread it with one (1) Tbsp Nutella and

placed almost 1/2 banana sliced on one side.

One (1) Tbsp Nutella

One (1) Tbsp Nutella











Then I rolled it as tightly as possible,

dipped it (but didn’t soak it) in one beaten egg, and

cooked it in a small non-stick skillet in one (1) tsp (pat) of butter until the egg was cooked. After I took it out of the pan, I cooked the remainder of the egg in the same pan. Therefore, the entire egg is counted in the total calories.

Then I sprinkled the french toast with sugar and cinnamon (mixed) and

then a little powdered sugar and

1 Tbsp pancake syrup

for a total of 400 calories

(or 500 calories if you wanted to add another Tbsp of Nutella)



Delicious Healthy Breakfast

I’m not a nutritionist, so when I say it’s healthy, it’s because it seems healthy to me. You and your doctor decide for yourself. That’s my disclaimer for all the “diet” / “healthy eating” information and tips on this blog. It’s just my opinions based on the research I’ve done. Now, I can tell you with authority what is DELICIOUS to me. 🙂

I’ve been losing weight since July 4, 2015, and have lost 17-1/2 lbs. To lose weight is one of my goals, but it’s also a goal to eat healthier the rest of my life. I’ll talk more about all this in upcoming posts. For today, here’s the recipe for this morning’s delicious breakfast:

In a small skillet, I put less than a Tbsp of butter,

a little chopped green onion to taste, and

one piece leftover bacon torn.

After that cooked briefly, I added

2 eggs which had been briskly beaten with a dab of skim milk, and

salt and freshly ground black pepper.

On top, I added

1/8 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and

fresh spinach which I tore into small pieces.

I cooked it all over medium heat, shaking it occasionally to be sure it didn’t stick, and tilting it occasionally to let the uncooked egg run to the sides. (I gently scraped some liquid off the top to the sides so it would cook, too.

Then I turned it out onto a small plate, folding it over on itself as I let it slide out.

Easy and delicious!!
