Step-by-step instructions

Here’s how to make fruit French toast:

Make the egg mixture: In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, egg white, vanilla extract, and ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon.

Dip bread in egg mixture: Take the whole-wheat bread slices and dip them into the egg mixture, turning them to evenly coat the sides. Tip: Don’t leave the bread in the egg mixture for too long, or it may get soggy.

Cook the French toast: Spray a large non-stick pan with oil. Cook the bread slides over medium heat until browned on both sides.

Saute the grapes: While the French toast is cooking, heat olive oil in a small nonstick pan. Saute the grapes over medium-high heat, about 3-4 minutes, until they begin to soften.

Add toppings: When the French toast is cooked and the grapes are sauteed, put the toast on a plate and top with grapes, pistachios, nutmeg, and remaining cinnamon. Enjoy!
