Slow and Steady: Gluten-Free French Toast
On this long weekend, we contemplate what President’s Day means to us. Definitely a time to slow down and steady the pace.
I love long weekends! A little break from the everyday running around, up early, too much to do of everyday life. Time to take it slow, enjoy what is around and spend extra time with those you love. Whether you go away, take a hike or walk, sit and relax, party with friends or relax and read a book, this is the time to slow down and steady your pace. Recharge.
One of our family’s favorite sleep-in, hang-out breakfast recipes to enjoy is our tasty gluten-free French Toast. To us it means, relaxing, enjoying and not running out the door to get moving right away.
It is simple to make, lovely to share and delicious to taste! (A treat, not an everyday event!)
Our Favorite Gluten-Free French Toast
1 t. pure vanilla
1 T pure maple syrup
1-2 t. cinnamon
1/2-1 cup of milk (organic rice milk or coconut milk)
1 loaf of your favorite sliced gluten-free bread
In a shallow bowl beat the two eggs. Add in the vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon and milk. Mix to combine well.
Slice your bread if needed. We use our own homemade gluten-free bread we have come to love. I found this particular recipe on Gluten Free & More, and had to change it up a bit to suit our food intolerances/allergies. (Typically I made rolls for sandwiches, then use the left-over dough to make a small loaf for French Toast or just to enjoy.) You can make your own, or use a store/bakery gluten-free bread of choice. Make sure you are reading the food labels and choose a healthier version as there are too many unhealthy breads out there!*
While you preheat your skillet on medium, soak 1-2 pieces of bread in the mixture and lay onto the skillet. Gluten-free bread can fall apart quite
easily so do not soak the slices too long – just make sure all sides are covered and seeping with all the deliciousness.
Cook about 2-5 minutes per side.
Watch so they do not burn, but are nicely browned. Continue soaking and cooking until you have enough slices per person.
Drizzle with pure maple syrup. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Serve with whatever choice of fruit you have on hand.
Relax and enjoy your day ahead!
