Recipe Post: Weight Watchers Breakfast Bread (or French Toast / Eggy Bread to you and me)

Whatever you call it, be it Eggy Bread or French Toast this quick breakfast is great for a weekend treat (especially as I adapted from savoury to sweet!).  Ok, so not technically a bake but still this is a tried, tested and adapted Weight Watchers recipe.  I fancied something different for my brekkie and the Weight Watchers app does have lots of recipe inspiration and this fitted what I had in the fridge.

What you need:

Makes 4 servings

4 eggs
4 slices Weight Watchers thick wholemeal bread
4 tbsp skimmed milk
Low calorie frying spray (e.g Frylight)
Vanilla essence, if required
Cinnamon, if required

What you do:

  • Lightly beat the eggs and milk together.
  • Add some vanilla and cinnamon if required, mix.
  • Put the bread in a shallow dish and cover with the egg mixture.  Allowing to soak in….repeat for all slices of bread.
  • Mist a large frying pan with cooking spray and heat.
  • Fry the bread until golden.  Recipe states 2-3 minutes, realistically this took mine closer to 12 minutes.

I’ve never made this before and it was really quick and easy, however the cooking spray is not ideal for getting a golden brown or stopping the bread stick to the pan.  Next time, I think I’ll sacrifice 1 of my daily points and use oil instead.  In all honesty, I didn’t think I was going to like it as I don’t like fried eggs.  However, they were really quite yummy.  I do surprise myself sometimes.

I served my Eggy Bread with a couple of teaspoons of vanilla yoghurt and some fresh blueberries.  Next time, I’ll add cinnamon.

If you are following the Weight Watchers Flex plan, these equate to 2 points per slice!

Until next time…Happy Baking!
