Cannoli-Stuffed French Toast Nuggets

There are no words to describe how amazing these french toast nuggets were! They were also surprisingly filling from one serving. This recipe was an early morning winner...I prepared all of the mixtures the night before so all I had to do was stuff, cut, dip and skillet the nuggets. Hungry Girl has won over my heart again! Enjoy!

Cannoli-stuffed French Toast Nuggets

1/4 c fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/4 t cnnamon
1 t vanilla extract, divided
3 T fat-free ricotta cheese
2 t mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 no-calorie sweetener packet
1 light hot dog bun (I used light wheat)
2 t light whipped butter or light buttery spread
1/2 t powdered sugar

Mix egg substitute, cinnamon, and 1/2 t vanilla extract in a small bowl. Set aside

In a separate bowl, combine ricotta cheese, chocolate chips, remaining 1/2 t vanilla extract, and sweetener, and mix well.

Split hot dog bun open lengthwise without fully separating the two halves. Spoon ricotta mixture onto the bottom half of the bun. Gently press the top half down over the filling. Carefully slice into four "nuggets."

Bring a skillet spray with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add butter and allow to coat the bottom of the skillet. Meanwhile, coat each nugget on all sides with the egg mixture.

Once butter has melted place nuggets in the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes, flipping nuggets until golden brown on all sides.

Plate your nuggets, sprinkle with powdered sugar and, if you like serve with syrup for dipping


  1. I love the Hungry Girl!
    I have this one marked to try out too!!!

  2. Its soooo worth it!

    I mixed my ricotta mix and the egg sub mix the night before so I only had to put it in the buns and dip it in the egg mixture. It helped make it really quick for this morning!
