Active time: 15 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
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
3 1-inch-thick slices whole-grain sourdough bread, halved
4 tablespoons low-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
