French Toast, Cheese Baked (D)
Source: Live Longer Cookbook
Serves: 4

2/3 cup cottage cheese, 1/2% fat
1/4 cup skim milk
2 teaspoons sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 slices bread, whole grain

Preheat the oven to 425°F.

In a food processor or blender, whirl the cottage cheese, milk, sugar, egg, egg white, and vanilla for about 1 minute or until smooth.

Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish, place the bread in it and let stand for 10 minutes. Turn the bread over and let stand another 10 minutes. (To save time in the morning, soak the bread overnight.)

Meanwhile, grease a baking sheet and place it in the preheated oven for 7 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, place the bread on it, and bake for 6 minutes. Turn the bread over and bake 5 to 6 minutes longer or until golden brown. Serve with no-sugar-added jam.
