This egg white french toast is a wonderful addition to breakfast. Whether you're trying to eat lighter or simply trying to use up egg whites that you may have on hand, this recipe comes in handy.
We have been experimenting with cartons of egg whites lately and one of the winning recipes we found was this delicious french toast. Packed with spice and made with simple ingredients, this recipe is definitely a keeper!
This recipe is actually an adaption of my Sourdough French Toast recipe. Made with any sliced bread you may have in the pantry. It's delicious and easy.
🍯 Why This Recipe Works
- It's simple. Made with some basic pantry staple ingredients, this recipe comes together pretty easily and quickly.
- It tastes great with any side breakfast side dish. We usually serve our egg white french toast with a side of fresh fruit and turkey bacon, but feel free to try other breakfast favorites too. The sky's the limit here!
- It's a nice twist to a classic. Made with almond milk and egg whites, we really reduce a lot of calories, cholesterol, and saturated fats. You can even use low-carb or whole-wheat bread if desired.
Egg Whites- You can use liquid egg whites from a carton or actual eggs with the yolks removed.
Almond milk- Any milk will work just fine, but almond milk is much lower in calories.
Sliced bread- I like to keep things simple with some sliced sandwich bread, but feel free to use any sliced bread you have on hand.
Olive oil- This is just needed for greasing the pan or griddle. It encourages browning on the outsides of the french toast while helping it not to stick to the pan. Avocado spray oil also works too.
For specific ingredients and measurements, please see the recipe card below.
Step 1: Add the egg whites, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla to a pie plate.
Step 2: Whisk until well combined.
Step 3: Preheat your skillet or griddle to medium-high heat (about 350 degrees F).
Step 4: Grease your pan with olive oil to make it nonstick.
Step 5: Dip a piece of bread into the egg mixture.
Step 6: Flip it to coat the other side.
Step 7: Cook the bread for about 2-3 minutes in your preheated pan.
Step 8: Flip the bread over and cook the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with fresh fruits and maple syrup.
🍴 Recipe Tips
Do not allow your bread to soak for too long. This mixture is pretty wet, so a quick dip and coating on both sides is all that is needed.
If you allow the bread to rest in the egg white mixture for too long, it will become very soggy and try to fall apart when lifted.
⏲️ Make Ahead Instructions
You can freeze your french toast on a baking sheet for one hour until solid and then transfer to an airtight container for up to 2 months—reheat before serving.
Your leftover french toast can be kept stored in a Ziploc bag in the fridge for up to 4 days. Warm in the microwave before eating or eat it cold if desired.
🥗 Side Dishes
You can serve this french toast recipe with just about any breakfast side dish, or even none at all.
Our favorite breakfast side dishes include Hashbrowns, fresh fruit, orange juice, and bacon.
Turkey bacon is one of our go-to options because it's cheaper and more likely to be in stock at our local grocery store.
One of the biggest mistakes when making french toast is not thoroughly mixing together the eggs and milk. This leaves long stringy bits of egg white throughout the batter and gives the french toast more of a "scrambled egg" taste. To correct this, I recommend using a whisk instead of a fork to blend the mixture, or running it through the blender for a few pulses.
Adding milk to the french toast mixture helps to coat and soften the bread and give a more custard-like consistency in the center.
If your french toast is soggy, it could be that you either oversoaked the bread or that you had too high of a temperature on your pan, resulting in cooked outsides and raw centers.
