Whoever said too much of a good thing…is an idiot. Seriously. If it’s really good can there ever be too much? And if it’s Smart Points friendly? Even better!
Remember the infamous The Original Weggo episode from a few weeks ago? Our friend with the chickens who refused to lay a few months ago must have done some chatting up with the girls. They are laying so often now that she is looking for egg takers. Me, me, pick me!
The French Toast Weggo – 4 Smart Points
- 1 slice lite bread (no more than 1SP per slice, I used almost but not quite stale White Wheat)
- 1 egg
- 1/8 cup egg whites
- 2 Tbsp Fat Free or light Ricotta Cheese
- 1 Tbsp Kirkland crumbled bacon (or Hormel or similar) – optional
- 1/8 cup Cary Sugar Free Maple Flavored syrup (or similar)
- Non stick spray
Start the waffle iron to heat according to instructions while you get everything else ready. Liberally spray both sides of the waffle iron and then the bottom of the slice of bread. Place bread on the bottom griddle and lightly press the middle with a spoon to just barely indent and evenly spread the ricotta. Then carefully crack egg in the center of the slice and then add egg whites. Don’t worry if some runs down, it’s all going to cook. Sprinkle with the crumbled bacon (optional) and close the top. Let cook for approximately 5 minutes or until you can smell the yumminess. Gently lift the top a little to check and if the egg is set you are ready to go. Gently open completely (if it needs a little help letting go gently poke with a spatula) and unplug the waffle iron. Wiggle a spatula under the bread and try to lift out in one piece. I was actually surprised how well it all held together…even the parts that had oozed off the bread! I added 1/8 cup of sugar free syrup for zero points or if you’d rather have 1/4 cup it’s only 1 SP more!
Turn to your spouse, child, or whatever witness you have handy who is standing their with mouth gaping because you are now a hero.
