This week, we have the ultimate brunch from Tyler Florence. For those of you with sweet tooths, drool a little bit over this French Toast:

Upside-Down Apple French Toast

  • 1 cup egg beaters/all whites
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 loaf challah bread, cut into 1 inch-thick slices
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, plus more for sprinkling, divided
  • 4 Granny Smith apples
  • 1/4 cup fat free half and half cream
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • Confectioners’ sugar, garnish, optional

Doesn’t that sound absolutely divine? He pairs it with an equally impressive omelet.

Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Omelet

  • 4 eggs plus 1 cup egg beaters/ all whites
  • 1/4 cup fat free half and half cream
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/3 pound smoked salmon, torn into large piece
  • 1 cup light or fat free cream cheese, room temperature
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped, garnish
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

If you’re not a smoked salmon fan, try this recipe with lean ham- that would be delicious as well!

With a brunch like this, you’ll also want to offer some lighter options like yogurt or fresh fruit to round out the meal. Enjoy!
