Serves: 4
Active time: 15 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

3 ripe plums, chopped into ½-inch pieces
1 large ripe yellow heirloom tomato cut in 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon finely chopped candied ginger, plus slivers for garnish
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon maple syrup, plus more for serving (optional)
1 large egg
¼ cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Salt
3 1-inch-thick slices whole-grain sourdough bread, halved
4 tablespoons low-fat plain Greek yogurt

Directions

  1. Preheat grill to medium. Place plums and tomato on a large piece of foil; scatter with chopped candied ginger and drizzle with 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Fold the foil to make a packet and crimp to seal.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together egg, milk, vanilla extract, a pinch of salt and remaining 1 teaspoon maple syrup. Dip both sides of each bread half in the mixture and place on grill, along with the foil packet. Grill bread for 2 minutes per side or until grill marks appear. Grill packet for 4 to 5 minutes or until fruit is warm and slightly softened.
  3. Transfer grilled bread to four plates. Carefully open the packet and spoon plums, tomato, and juices over French toast. Garnish with slivered candied ginger. Serve each with a dollop of yogurt and, if desired, more maple syrup.
