French Toast Cups
With rising food prices, it can be hard to get your money’s worth at the grocery store. Thankfully, celebrity chef Rachael Ray has some tips for how to stretch your dollars while slimming your waist. Save on yogurt by purchasing economy-sized containers instead of individual cups and avoid waste by using stale bread to make these breakfast cups
Makes 4-6 servings
Non-stick cooking spray
1 tbsp milk
2 tsp cinnamon
Dash of vanilla extract, optional
Dash of fresh nutmeg, optional
6 slices whole grain sandwich bread
1 pint fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries)
1 cup Greek yogurt, regular or low-fat
Maple syrup or honey, for drizzling
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Spray the inside of each cup of a 6-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg. Cut a slit in the corner of each slice of bread from the middle of the slice to the edge.
Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture then lightly press it into a cup of the muffin tin, overlapping the pieces where you cut the slit to make it fit into the cup without tearing. Bake the French toast cups for 12-14 minutes, until they're light golden brown.
Allow the cups to cool slightly in the muffin tin before removing them. To serve, arrange the cups on a platter, fill each one with fresh fruit and a dollop of yogurt. Drizzle with maple syrup or honey.
