Today was a good day! I broke through my stagnation and lost .6 lbs! Let’s hope I stay on this track.
Summer is officially here because we Californians definitely felt the heat today. I actually had to cut my volunteering time short today because the soles of my shoes peeled off while playing with one of the dogs. Poor little guys, I’ll have to come back tomorrow to finish walking the rest of them.
For those of you who have tried the French Toast recipe from my earlier post, you know that it is a good one. A recipe like that is a real gem as it can work in so many ways. Previously, it inspired me to create the Savory Dukan Bread and now the Dukan Bread Pudding!
First, make the bread recipe. You can find it here. Note: only make the bread portion of the recipe.
Then, follow the recipe below.
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup skim milk
6 packets of splenda
1/2 ts cinnamon
1/2 ts vanilla extract
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Break bread into pieces in two small souffle cups or one large souffle cup.
Lightly spray cooking spray over bread.
In a bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients.
Pour mixture over bread. Use a fork to gently push the bread down to soak up the mixture.
Bake for 30 minutes & serve with fat free vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.
For as long as people have been Dukan dieting, I’m sure, people have been trying to find innovative ways to eat bread and still adhere to the rules of the Dukan Diet. I have found a hand full of great recipes that are testaments to this. A great example would be Silvia’s Soft Buns recipe that contains a mixture of cream cheese & fluffy egg-whites. This recipe is delicious! However, it takes a bit of time & energy to prepare. Another example would be from the previously posted french toast recipe; a solid & quick recipe for breakfast or to satisfy your sweet tooth. With that said, the following recipe for bread is a play on both of these excellent recipes and results in a savory, firm bread that can be used in any sandwich!
Savory Dukan Bread
4 tbs oat bran
1/2 ts baking powder
2 tbs fat free greek yogurt
4 tbs fat free cream cheese
1/2 ts onion powder
1 ts dry chopped onions
1 /2 ts garlic salt
1/4 ts pepper
1/2 ts italian-herb seasoning
Whisk ingredients in a bowl.
Pour mixture into a microwave safe dish. (I used a medium-sized tupperware container)
Microwave on 750 watts for 4 minutes.
Remove from microwave and let cool for a few minutes.
Flip dish upside down on a cutting board to remove bread from container.
Cut bread into about 2 squares.
Place in toaster & toast squares until golden brown on both sides.
Cut squares in half to make a total of 4 squares of toast. (yields 2 servings)
