Default Mock French Toast/Pancakes

hey South Beacher's-
i found this recipe and decided to try it out and it is FABULOUS.. it tastes like the real thing and i felt as though i was cheating.. you have to try it.. ive made it every day since i found it.

Mock French Toast

4 egg whites
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup riccotta cheese
dash cinnamon
1 packet of splenda
I cant believe its not butter spray
sugar free maple syrup


mix all together in a bowl and beat with a fork
pour into pan like you would as if you were making pancakes
top with butter spray and syrup and ENJOY!!!
(really tasty with turkey bacon and coffee-

This is for a single serving.
226 calories, 10 grams of fat, 5 grams carbs and 27 gram of protein when made with part skim ricotta.

Thanks for the recipe! Some thoughts for others who may try this (I just made it..) This seemed a bit much for a single serving - I couldn't finish it all. It came out much better if you make them kind of thin.. at the end I just dumped the remaining batter in the pan and it came out too thick, which makes it taste like an odd sort of egg. These are kind of eggy tasting - not like real pancakes, but if you make them thin it's better. Add a little extra cinnamon. Thanks for the variety!

I will give these a try. I just went back to phase 1 for a few days as my "weekly pound loss" did not happen this week. I think I have been over doing it with "good" carbs so I will get the craving issue under control by returning to phase 1. I so do not like ricotta cheese but hopefully I won't taste it with this recipe. Thanks for the breakfast idea. Variety is so important with this diet.

This tasted so good this morning! I'm a real breakfast foods person and I'm so happy that I found this recipe. I'm curious to hear if anyone has any suggestions for a good sugar-free syrup. I tried the Smuckers brand first and it was pretty good. Any other suggestions?

mmm! Made this this morning for the first time. My batter was a lot thinner than real pancake batter, so the result was more like sweet crepes than pancakes, but still nummy! Also had turkey bacon - yes, a very nice complement.

I second that the portions given seem way too much for a single serving. It was plenty to feed both me and my boyfriend.

These where pretty good. I just started phase 1. Tues will be one week and I am already sick of eggs for breakfast. Although it was a bit egglike, the sugar free maple syrup really made it delicious!

Just tried these, still have some on my plate that I can't finish. Made about 4 total pancakes. I agree they were very thin and more like crepes, I might omit the sweet stuff next time and roll them up with veggies. The only thing that made them taste like pancakes was the ICBINB and syrup. I thought they were very eggy. I used egg beaters egg whites (3/4 c = 4 egg whites). Maybe I should use less next time for more pancakey results? Or more ricotta?

OK, I might be doing something really wrong here or maybe I just need a waffle iron but I have been toying with this recipe for almost 5 years and I can never get it to look anything remotely like a crepe or a pancake or french toast! It looks like sweet scrambled eggs to me and that just grosses me out mentally.

Any tips?

I tired these this morning and I really enjoyed them! Had them with a cup of coffee and some turkey bacon. A great breakfast for a Saturday morning!

I use Maple Grove Farms SF syrup. I've tried SF Log Cabin and SF Mrs. Butterworths and neither one can compare...MGF has a lot of flavor for a SF syrup!

I took a picture when I made them..they taste more like french toast than pancakes to me. The picture is of only 2 but the batter made 5 of the same size (this is a 10 inch dinner plate)...I ate 3 before I thought to take a picture!

My daughter and I made them with pureed FF cottage cheese instead of ricotta - and added a pinch of salt. She likes the taste better than the ricotta. They're just what the doctor ordered when you can't face another egg/veg combo!
