Ingredients

TOPPING

  • 4 oz frozen dark sweet cherries, thawed and quartered
  • 4 dried apricot halves, diced
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 packets stevia
  • 1/2 cups plain Greek-style yogurt

TOAST

  • 1 tbsp safflower oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 4 1-oz slices reduced-calorie whole-grain bread

Preparation

  1. Prepare topping: In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup water, cherries and apricots and bring to boil on medium-high heat. Boil for 20 to 30 seconds to reduce mixture slightly. Remove from heat, stir in orange zest, vanilla and stevia: cover and set aside.
  2. Prepare toast: Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. In a shallow pan such as a pie pan, whisk eggs, egg whites and orange zest. Working quickly, dip each slice of bread into egg mixture and place on a plate until all slices have been coated. Slide bread slices (instead of lifting off the plate) into skillet and cook for 3 minutes per side or until golden.
  3. To serve, divide cherry mixture evenly among bread slices, then top with yogurt.
