Apples to Apples

Has anyone ever played this game before?

apples to apples

We never have, but it sounds like it could be fun! For those who don’t know, this is a type of word game. Players are given “red apple” cards, each with a noun or noun phrase on them, and the judge chooses a “green apple” card, which contains an adjective. The judge puts this card face up on the table for the players to see, and then each player chooses one of their red apple cards that they think best matches the green apple card and puts it face down. The judge shuffles the red apple cards and reads them, deciding which card matches the green apple card the best. The point is for the judge to choose the match that is “most creative, humorous or interesting”.

So…. what does this game have to do with today’s post?

Absolutely nothing! Except that today’s post has apples in it. :)

Hmm… what’s the best adjective to describe this breakfast?

Decadent? Delicious?

Cinnamon-juicy-apple-and raisin-filled-awesome?
(For some reason we don’t think they have that one in the game, but if they did it would win for best match!)

Another good way to describe it is healthy. And maybe sneaky too, because if you ever made this for someone, they would never guess that it’s good for them! ;) With whole wheat bread, apples, low-fat milk,  and high-protein cottage cheese and egg whites, this dish has got a lot going for it!

But who needs adjectives? We’ll let the photos speak for themselves. :)

Apple Cinnamon Stuffed French Toast

DSCN5109

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 5 min
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

2 slices of your favourite whole wheat bread, approx. 1 inch thick.
6 egg whites (or 3 eggs)
2 tbsp sugar-free apple butter Apple Butter (store-bought or home-made)
3 tbsp milk of choice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp vanilla

Filling:

1/2 medium sized apple,very  thinly sliced
1/4 c. raisins
1 tsp water
cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste

For the cream:

1/3 c. cottage cheese
1/4 c. apple butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
water as needed (we used approx. 2 tbsp

Directions:

Slice your bread into 1-inch pieces, then slice into the centre of each bread slice, making a pocket for the apples, without cutting all the way through.
In a bowl, combine the apple slices, raisins, cinnamon and nutmeg and water and microwave for 1-2 min or until apples are soft. Drain off excess liquid and stuff the apple raisin mixture into the pockets of the bread.
Preheat a non-stick frying pan or pancake griddle over medium-high heat.  Spray with cooking spray.
In a wide, shallow dish, combine egg whites, milk, apple butter, spices and vanilla. Soak both sides of each bread slice and place the bread on the preheated pan.  Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the bread turns a nice golden brown, then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

While the bread is cooking, put all the cream ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth, adding water slowly until you reach the thickness you desire.

Optional:  Dice the other half of the apple and cook in a little bit of water for topping.
