I may be french toast's biggest fan, but it's been years since I've eaten the "bread" version. However, this "French Toast Egg Puff" (at least that's that what I call it) is an amazing alternative and sometimes I eat it several times a week! The basic recipe is just 3 ingredients and the result is a thick, puffy, sweet, and very similar in taste to "real" french toast!
2 Oz. cream cheese
Sugar free syrup and/or 1 teaspoon of artificial sugar (I use Stevia)
Step 1: Soften cream cheese in a microwave for about 20 seconds, then add two eggs and a tablespoon of sugar free syrup (and also a packet or teaspoon of artificial sugar if you'd like).

Stir until blended, but it will be lumpy at this point with chunks of cream cheese.
Step 2: Return to microwave for 45 seconds then stir again. You'll notice that the egg has started to harden, but just break it up and stir until blended and creamy.
Step 3: Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes. If still soft in the middle, flip over with a spatula and return to microwave for another 20 seconds or so. The end result should look something like this, maybe a bit different if you use a bigger bowl.
Step 4: Flip the egg puff out of the bowl onto a plate and top with sugar free syrup.
You can also make a sweet and creamy spread using cream cheese, sugar free syrup, and heavy cream. No measurements, just however much of each for the amount and thickness you'd like. Just soften some cream cheese in the microwave, add a bit of heavy cream. From there you can choose to add some artificial sugar, or other flavored sugar free syrups to your liking. I used Torani sugar free vanilla syrup and a packet of Stevia. Blend it all together for a super yummy topping! I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon as well.
Happy Low Carbbing!
