It's miserable out there today, rain, cold, you just want to stay home. But you have a Sunday brunch craving and what will you do. Well fear not, NonChefNick has come to the rescue again. Chill the Champagne and get ready for a wonderful new sandwich to hit the breakfast scene. Move out of the way McDonalds and Burger King. Wimpy's, you ain't got nothing on NonChefNick's French Toast Sandwich, your Sunday Surpise!

I had all those cravings this morning; however, I was tired of the same old thing whenever I have a craving for breakfast. I guarantee that if you try this sandwich at home, you will have it time and time again from here on out. It is so easy to make and introduces a whole new twist to two popular breakfast dishes, French Toast and bacon and eggs. It marries the two to provide a wonderful savory breakfast or brunch entree that feels perfectly comfortable with a chilled glass of Champagne. Let's begin by getting together all the ingredients for this dish. First, a word about nutrition. The ingredients mentioned here contain very little cholesterol and fat because we are using an egg substitute, you know, the kind that you find in the milk style carton next to the regular eggs. The product can be found throughout the US and Canada, and I'm sure it's available throughout other parts of the world. Another thing to mention, this recipe is for one sandwich, so measure according to your needs. I want to warn you however, one of these sandwiches can easily satisfy two people. As a side dish, you may have a selection of cut fruit such as oranges, bananas, and pears.

Ingredients

Cost per serving $2.10 view details
  • 2 cups of egg substitute (this saves you 350 mg. of cholesterol)
  • 2 slices of nice thick white bread (I think it's called Texas style?)
  • 2 strips of thick, lean bacon (you may use turkey bacon)
  • 1/4 cup of shredded Swiss, Parm, or Gruyere cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of butter (or butter substitute)
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. If you use some of the substitutes, you will save a lot on fat and cholesterol. If you choose to use regular eggs, you will want to use 3 eggs and 1/4 cup of milk.
  2. In a saute pan, fry the bacon on medium heat until cooked, about 3 minutes or so. Set aside and rest on paper napkins. Wash your pan so that you can use it for your bread.
  3. Pour the egg substitute in a dish or container and soak the bread on each side for about 10 seconds per side. Remove bread slices and set aside. There should be plenty of egg substitute left over. If not, add a bit more. Now add the cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper to the mixture and mix well. Set aside.
  4. In your saute pan, add the olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter, heat over medium heat. Once butter has melted, saute your bread for about 2 minutes on each side while reducing heat to medium low. When bread is golden brown, they are ready. Remove and set aside. Clean your pan, spray it with cooking spray and pour the remainder of the egg substitute into the pan, saute over medium heat for about a minute. Cover and shut off heat. Let side for another 2 minutes.
  5. Now it's time to put everything together. Start with setting one slice of the French Toast on a plate. Next, place the sauteed egg substittute on the toast. Then add the two slices of bacon, and finally place the second slice of French Toast on top. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and drizzle it over the sandwich and sprinkle any remaining parsley over it for garnish. You may choose to surround the sandwich with the sliced fruit. Enjoy your brunch. To think, you didn't even have to leave the house !

      Tried this recipe this morning. WILL MAKE IT AGAIN! I just used 2 slices of whole wheat bread, 1/2 cup egg whites, 1/8 cup of low fat shredded cheese, no butter or oil, just Pam, turkey bacon, and seasoned with Parsley and black pepper. With 1/2 cup of blueberries on the side I barely went over 300 calories!
      I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
      This is a variation
