Fiber-Rich and Tasty French Toast

If you love French Toast as much as I do, there's a way to get your fiber while enjoying this tasty delight. And..it's easy and quick. The additional fiber adds a crunchier texture and sweeter taste than typical French toast.

Use your favorite bread..

Prepare a fry skillet by lightly greasing bottom with either olive oil, spray oil or butter. Place skillet over medium heat. Test skillet for cooking readiness by placing one or two drops of water into it. When drops start bouncing, pan is ready.

½ c milk, either dairy or unsweetened soy
1 egg or 2 egg whites
½ teaspoon cinnamon
sprinkling of nutmeg
1/4c wheat germ or oat bran

Mix all ingredients together. Add more spices to suit your taste. Place the liquid into a pie pan.

Place wheat germ or oat bran into another pie pan.

Dip bread into liquid mixture to coat. Then..
Dip bread into whole grain while covering both sides.

Place bread into skillet. Cook until both sides are brown.
Remove from skillet and place onto serving plate.
Serve hot with your favorite topping...syrup, sliced fresh fruit, fruit preserves or compote.
