Servings: 4


3 eggs

1/4 cup skim or 2 per cent milk

1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 apple, cored

Pinch of cinnamon

8 slices multigrain bread

4 ounces old white cheddar, sliced or grated

4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped

In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla. Set aside.

Thinly slice apple and place in a bowl. Toss with cinnamon and set aside.
