Ingredients

  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon grated gingerroot or 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    Stir together gingerroot, applesauce and syrup in small microwavable bowl. Microwave uncovered on Medium (50%) about 1 minute or until very warm; set aside.
  • 2
    Beat eggs and egg white, milk, vanilla and salt in small bowl with fork or wire whisk until well mixed; pour into shallow bowl.
  • 3

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To boost the fiber in this spiced French toast, try using whole wheat bread.
  • tip 2
    For a great start to the day, sizzle a couple of reduced-fat breakfast sausage links while the French toast is cooking, and serve with herbal tea or coffee.
  • tip 3
    For quick work in the morning, make the applesauce mixture and egg mixture the night before and store covered in the refrigerator.
