Strawberry Banana French Toast

IHOP Copycat Recipe

Serves 1

1 tablespoon strawberry preserves
3/4 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons butter
3 slices bread
1/2 small banana, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
1/4 cup Reddi-wip

In a medium bowl, stir preserves until smooth. Add sliced strawberries, and stir to coat. In a wide bowl, mix egg substitute, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium high heat.  Add butter and let it coat the bottom. Meanwhile, coat bread on all sides with egg mixture. Cook egg coated bread until golden brown, 1  to 2 minutes per side. If you like, diagonally slice each piece in half. Plate French toast and top with strawberry mixture and sliced banana. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, top with Reddi-wip.
