Sunrise Sundae with French Toast Hash Browns

Let’s face it: if you’re at all physique-conscious, you likely gave up French Toast a long time ago.  But what if I told you you didn’t have to?  That’s right, with the help of some whole grain bread and omega-3 eggs, you can put French Toast back on your morning the menu… for good. ????

Now that news alone might be exciting enough, but it gets better thanks to this sundae-inspired French Toast recipe courtesy of my favourite cookbook of the moment, Gourmet Nutrition. When I say “sundae” I don’t mean ice cream, so don’t worry, this is definitely still a healthy post-workout (or any day) meal. Instead of the ice cream that you’d typically find on a sundae, this recipe subs-out the frozen dessert and replaces it with cottage cheese and fresh fruit. Topped with nuts, this is a breakfast that can’t be beat.

Hope you enjoy it!
