We needed to go to the store BAD. There was just nothing in the house to eat. I could hear an echo in the fridge when I closed the door for about the 5th time, hoping that if I opened it again, I would find inspiration in the worst of times. Afterall, what kind of Leftover Queen was I if I was not able to find SOMETHING to eat! It was lunch hour and our stomachs were growling. I needed to make something, that was obvious, but what? Open the fridge…AGAIN… stare for a few minutes MORE. I was beginning to feel rather stumped and annoyed with myself for lacking all this food creativity. Hurumph.

Wait. Today was the day that my Honey Hazelnut Semifreddo had been made and we had leftover eggs that did not whip properly and they needed to be used – not gonna waste 3 egg whites on my watch! There was also some bread in the fridge and cream cheese, thoughts of lunch were beginning to form. Somewhere recently we had heard about stuffed French toast and it sounded really good, but we needed something else to round out this meal. One quick look in the freezer and there it was – Frozen mango! Perfect. Mango Stuffed French Toast!

INGREDIENTS:

6 pieces of wholegrain bread
3 egg whites and 1 egg
a splash of milk
a little oil for cooking
@ 1 cup of frozen mango pieces
3 TBS cream cheese
powdered sugar for dusting

METHOD:

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk egg and milk together in a bowl. Dip bread into egg mixture and cook in skillet. In the meantime place frozen mango into a small saucepan and cook over super high heat and let cook down until saucy.

To serve, place one piece of French toast on the plate, spread cream cheese and mango sauce over top. Place second piece of French toast on top, cut in half, and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with maple syrup.

Not too bad for a quick fix!
