Hungry Girl's Apple & Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast Nuggets


Makes 1 serving

1/4 cup fat-free liquid-egg substitute
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup diced apple
1 no-calorie natural sweetener packet
2 tbsp reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature
1 light hot dog bun
2 tsp light whipped butter or light buttery spread
Light pancake syrup (optional)

In a wide bowl, mix egg substitute, vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.

In a small microwave-safe bowl, top apple with sweetener and remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon; toss to coat. Microwave for 1 minute, or until softened. Mix in cream cheese.

Open bun without separating the halves. Spoon apple mixture onto one half and lightly press to seal. Slice into four "nuggets."

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add butter and let it coat the bottom of the skillet. Meanwhile, coat nuggets on all sides with egg mixture.

Cook nuggets, flipping occasionally, until golden brown on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Enjoy!
