BANANAS FOSTER FRENCH TOAST
- 1/2 cup Egg Beaters
- 1/2 cup FAT FREE half-and-half
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 package Pillsbury REDUCED FAT Crescent Rolls; baked and halved
- 2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
- 3/4 cup LITE or SUGAR FREE maple syrup
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 2 ripe bananas; sliced
- 1 teaspoon rum extract
- FAT FREE cooking spray
In a large skillet, combine corn syrup, brown sugar, maple syrup and pecans. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, and simmer for 2 minutes. Add banana slices and rum extract. Coat with the syrup mixture, and simmer 1 minute. Spoon over French toast. Serve immediately.
I will use my husband's reaction to help describe how this turned out. He said, "Wow! This is awesome. It's restaurant quality; a signature dish." At that point I was both flattered and confused. Was I on a reality cooking show on Food Network? After all those shows I have us watching, he is starting to sound a little bit like Bobby Flay and the gang.
So we have concluded that the taste was amazing. What about the nutritional slim-down? See for yourself!
