What a task at hand and I have two older brothers and a dad to impress in providing food “with substance.” If you have to provide meals/snacks for your family and friends this holiday that are health cautious, perhaps my ideas can be suitable for you and/or inspiring. Enjoy!

Per serving: serves 1
French Toast Nuggets
1 Weight Watchers bagel (the fiber content is incredible!)
1/3 cup of egg substitute 2 packets of Equal 2 teaspoons of Vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Mix all ingredients except the bagel in a small bowl and stir with a utensil. Rip the bagel in bite-size pieces and place as many as possible that will fit in the bowl with the mixture. Let the bites soak up the ingredients and then place in a frying pan on the stove. Cook over medium heat and depending on type of pan you may need to spray the pan. I often use spray butter (it adds a little bit of a salty taste).
Cook the bagel bites until they appear a little crispy. If you want to impress guest with the meal presentation, add a dollop of fat free Cool Whip on the side and have sugar-free syrup available. Yum!
