Ingredients

Cost per serving $0.67 view details
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread or multi-grain bread, we used Milton’s Multi-Grain bread, see shopping tip
  • 4 tablespoons reduced-fat whipped cream cheese, see shopping tip
  • 8 teaspoons reduced sugar strawberry preserves, see shopping tip
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced thin
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoons reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light spread
  • Topping
  • 8 teaspoons powdered sugar
  • Strawberries slices for garnish

Directions

  1. On one side of 4 slices of bread spread with 1 tablespoon cream cheese. Next, on top of cream cheese, spread each with 2 teaspoons strawberry preserves. Place ¼ cup strawberry slices on each. Top each with the remaining slice of bread to make a sandwich.
  2. In a shallow bowl or pie plate, beat egg whites and vanilla.
  3. Dip 2 sandwiches into the egg mixture, making sure to coat both sides.
  4. Coat a large nonstick pan with cooking spray. Melt 2 teaspoons reduced-fat butter and swirl around bottom of pan. Add 2 sandwiches, cook about 3 minutes on medium-high heat until golden. Turn over and cook the undersides for about 2 minutes, until golden brown. Place cooked sandwiches on a baking sheet and keep warm in oven while cooking the other 2 sandwiches.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with 2 remaining sandwiches.
  6. Transfer each sandwich to a plate. Cut each in half and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons powdered sugar and garnish with strawberry slices.
  7. Serve immediately with a fork and knife. Enjoy!

    Shopping Tips

    We love Milton’s Multigrain bread. Each slice has 110 calories, 1g fat and 3g fiber. Most supermarkets sell along with Trader Joe’s.

    We used Trader Joe’s organic reduced sugar preserves. Each tablespoon has 30 calories.

    Reduced-fat whipped cream cheese comes in a tube versus a block of cream cheese.
