Cin-A-Licious Nuggets!!

Another new breakfast recipe? Oh yes....Another new recipe I LOVE??? You betcha!!

This morning I tried out a recipe I've been eyeing since the first time I looked through this book! The Cinnamon-Vanilla French Toast Nuggets!!!

Gathering all the delightful ingredients: Hot Dog Buns, yes I said Hot Dog Buns!, Sugar Free French Vanilla powder creamer, egg substitute, and cinnamon!
You chop up 2 Hot Dog Buns to make 16 pieces. You combine the french vanilla creamer, 1 tablespoon warm water, a dash of cinnamon, and 1/3 cup egg substitute.
Next dip the nuggets into the mixture. And then put them in a medium-high heat pan sprayed with nonstick spray!!

I must have put too much mixture on one or two nuggets because I had one lone nugget left with no mixture to soak it with!! Poor little nugget....the dogs got a little bread with their breakfast this morning!
Oh my YUM!!! The little french toast nuggets were better than a big piece of french toast. And dipping them into some amazing warmed up syrup! And how fun to have breakfast you can dip!!!

A healthy alternative to french toast is a must have in this household! I love getting up on the weekends and cooking a big breakfast for Chuck and I and now I don't have to give up the goodness of french toast.
Another plus to this recipe they go great with a cup coffee with French Vanilla creamer!!
Cinnamon-Vanilla French Toast Nuggets
2 hot dog buns
1/3 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
1 teaspoon Coffee-mate Sugar Free French Vanilla powdered creamer
2 dashes cinnamon
Optional topping, sugar-free pancake syrup
Split each bun in half and cut each of those halves into 4 pieces, leaving you with 16 chunks of bread.
In a small bowl, dissolve powdered creamer in 1 tablespoon warm water. Add egg substitute and 1 dash cinnamon, stirring until mixed well.
Bring a large pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Dip or soak bread pieces in egg mixture, covering them completely. Place egg-dipped bread pieces in the pan and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, flipping occasionally to cook all sides.
Remove from heat and plate your nuggets. Sprinkle with another dash cinnamon. If you like top with some sugar free pancake syrup.
