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.
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 8×8 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.
