If keeping the contents of your kids’ lunch box new and exciting is a challenge, try this French Toast PB&J, which uses tried and true ingredients in a unusual way.
French Toast PB&J

Servings: 1
1 large egg
1 tablespoon milk
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch salt
2 slices whole-wheat bread
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon fruit jam
1 tablespoon butter
Powdered sugar
In a wide, shallow bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, cinnamon and salt. Use the bread, peanut butter and jam to make a peanut butter and jam sandwich. Spread half of the peanut butter on each slice of bread. This helps the sandwich hold together.
Soak the sandwich in the egg mixture for 2 minutes per side, pressing it gently with a fork to help it absorb the egg.
Heat a medium skillet over medium. Add the butter. When the butter has melted, add the sandwich and fry for 2 minutes, or until the bottom is lightly browned. Use a spatula to flip the sandwich, then cover the skillet and cook for another 2 minutes, or until browned on the second side. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar.
