Ingredients

  • 2/3 Cups 2 percent reduced-fat milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 8 slices whole-wheat bread
  • 1/2 Cup strawberry preserves
  • 6 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil, divided
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar

Directions

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium shallow dish, stirring well with a whisk. Place the bread slices on a flat surface. Spread 2 tablespoons of the preserves over 4 of the bread slices, and spread 1½ tablespoons of peanut butter over each of the remaining 4 bread slices. Assemble sandwiches.

Carefully dip 2 sandwiches in the milk mixture, turning to coat. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1½ teaspoons of the canola oil to the pan; swirl to coat. Place the coated sandwiches in the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until they're nicely toasted. Remove the sandwiches from pan and repeat the procedure with the remaining 2 sandwiches, milk mixture, and oil. Sprinkle powdered sugar evenly over the sandwiches and cut each sandwich in half diagonally.

French Toast Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

French Toast Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
