Easy Peasy GF(CF) French Toast

While making a hot breakfast in the morning isn't my claim to fame, I've actually made this easy French Toast two mornings in a row. It's that quick and easy.

Udi's sells wonderfully large loaves of their bread at Costco. Normal adult bread sized slices of bread that make sandwiches and toast that fit my guys' appetites. The texture of Udi's is great for French toast as well, it absorbs lots of egg mixture without getting soggy.

This is an easy recipe to divide in half or double. I just keep the same ratio of one large egg and 1/3 cup of light coconut milk to three slices (or four smaller slices) of bread. The light coconut milk I use is Trader Joe's. It has a pour-able consistency that makes it a great sub for regular milk in many recipes. I fry these up in either coconut oil (CF) or butter and we like both versions.

Easy Peasy GF(CF) French Toast

Preheat skillet (I prefer cast iron)

Six slices GF bread such as Udi's
2 large Eggs
2/3 cup Light Coconut Milk
pinch of vanilla bean powder (optional but nice)
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil or Butter for Frying

In a low, wide bowl or 8x8 square pan whisk Eggs and Coconut milk and add the Vanilla Bean Powder if using.

Briefly soak each slice in the egg mixture and fry in Coconut Oil or Butter a few minutes on each side until lightly browned. While Joe prefers them plain or with butter, a topping of fruit preserves is delicious, too.

Bob loves French Toast. I use vanilla in mine too, and cinnamon which I know you can't have. But since I am married to Mr. Cinnamon, well, there has to be cinnamon in everything, in large quantities.
Maybe we will have a cold season here, and I can make it for him.

This is one of Josiah's favorite breakfast foods, but I had forgotten that you can add milk to French toast. :)

Udi's makes large loaves of bread? I wish Costco were closer to us!!

Yum, Kathryn! I don't shop at Costco so I didn't know that they carried the larger loaves of Udi's bread. I wonder if all Costcos do. None of my support group members who shop there have mentioned it. Will share this recipe on FB and mention that for the Udi's fans and see what everyone says. :-)

Hi Friend! Cinnamon Sugar French Toast used to be a "thing" here. =D

I am jealous of warm CA weather - it's been so cold here.

Miss you, too! YSIC

Yes, Leah, so far I only find them at Costco. =D

Shirley, someone mentioned it on another board or I never would have thought to look. It's in the racks with all the other bread in my Costco. My guys love it.
