HG's Cinnalicious French Toast Nuggets (145 calories, 4g fat)

Average order French toast sticks (530 calories, 24g fat!)

French toast has way more calories than pancakes - thick bread- - too much egg -- butter, sugar, etc... HG French toast nuggets are made with light hot dog buns - cinnamon, egg substitute, vanilla -- sweetener -- have tons of flavor...


  • 1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 light hot dog bun
  • 2 tsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread
  • Optional toppings: powdered sugar, sugar-free pancake syrup
  • Cooking Directions

    In a wide bowl, mix egg substitute, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Split bun in half. Cut each half widthwise into4 pieces, leaving you with 8 "nuggets." Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add butter and let it coat the bottom. Meanwhile, coat nuggets on all sides with egg mixture. Cook nuggets, flipping occasionally, until golden brown on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Enjoy!

    Can't find 80-calorie light buns? Just get the lowest-calorie hot dog buns you see and adjust the calorie count accordingly. Bonus points if they have fiber!
