French Toast: Sweet or Savory?

Everyone likes french toast, especially after a good workout!  It’s also a good portable food for lunch or snack.  Add a little maple syrup in a container so kids can dunk their french toast.   It also packs a lot of goodness:

  • Whole eggs are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals
  • 1 whole egg contains approximately 6 to 7 grams of protein
  • Eggs are a great source of Vitamin B2, B12, A and E, iron and zinc

For a savory version of french toast see our note below the recipe.
