French Toast with a Sweet Maple Mango Chutney

Today's post is simple.  Just the recipe.

I don't have any stories about french toast, and can't think of anything interesting to talk about today, unless you want to hear about my waking up with a sore and drippy nose.  No?  Didn't think so.  When my oldest niece was little, she had the cutest way of saying in a stuffy little voice, "I have a cold nose, Aunt Heather."  She lives too far away now, and I miss her.

So without any ado, for an almost "wordless Wednesday" post, I give you (healthy) French Toast with Maple Mango Chutney...

Mmmm...  Breakfast for dinner, anyone?

French Toast with Maple Mango Chutney
printable recipe

  • 1 mango, diced (peel and seed discarded)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread

In a medium saucepan, toss the diced mango with the cornstarch.  Add the orange juice and cinnamon.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then reduce to low.  Mash the mango a little with the back of a wooden spoon or a potato masher, but leave the mixture chunky.  Stir in the maple syrup and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes while you prepare the french toast.

Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat.  Spray with non-stick spray.

In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Dip the slices of bread in the egg mixture then cook on the griddle for a few minutes on each side, until golden brown and crisp.

Top the french toast with the mango chutney to serve.

Yields 2 servings.
