Yes, you read that right! There is now a way to enjoy Stuffed French Toast on the Trim Healthy Mama plan [Hallelujah Chorus]!
I have eaten at IHOP exactly one time. I ordered the Stuffed French Toast and was a little dissapointed. I was certain I could make it better. I researched online and created a recipe that was, in fact, better than IHOP's. I received rave reviews whenever I made it.
When I started THM, I was just a little bit sad that I shouldn't ever eat Stuffed French Toast again. I was kinda proud of my recipe and enjoyed making it [and eating it;)].
AND THEN.... I had a revelation. Using this French Toast recipe, I could THMifiy (I just made that up) my original recipe.
In the interest of fairness, I will disclose that the healthified (I might have just made that word up, too) version is not as good. It is however, still very good. When my dad tried this for the first time, he said, "Are you sure this is low carb?" He loved it!! (You might have figured out by now, Dad is my number one guinea pig)
The last time I made this recipe, I was surprised at how quickly I made it. Under half and hour start to finish! If you make the cream cheese filling and the strawberry sauce ahead of time, it should be even faster (I don't recommend making the french toast batter ahead of time, it will get too thick).
If you're looking for a fancy brunch recipe, I highly recommend this one! Because it is so dense, I do not recommend eating it too often, as it might slow down your weight loss. Every once in a while should be fine.
French Toast - S
Make French Toast recipe as directed
In a mixing bowl, beat together and
spread between pieces of 'french toast' (like a sandwich):
3 oz of cream cheese
3 Tbsp of butter
plan approved sweetener
(I used 3 Tbsp of SJC)
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 Cup of Frozen Strawberries
in a small saucepan on simmer.
When it has started to 'juice' add
1/4 tsp of glucomannan
1 1/2 Tbsp of SJC
Whisk well. When it reaches desired thickness,
pour over top over your French Toast 'sandwiches'.
If you'd like, you can powder xylitol and sprinkle on top.
You could also put a small squirt of Reddi-Whip on top
(or your own whipped cream).
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
