French toast has always been an indulgent breakfast item that I crave when I see it on restaurant menus but never can order it as it’s not FODMAP safe. Don’t feel bad for me (or you), as this recipe version will allow you to make a deliciously safe french toast that will quickly be added to to the top of your FODMAP breakfast recipes list. I used bakery style sourdough bread as it’s safe for most people on the FODMAP diet. If this isn’t an option for you, gluten-free bread like Udi’s brand will work just as well!
I was curious on the origins of this delicious egg soaked breakfast dish so after a quick google search learned that “french toast” was first used in 17th century England and was brought to America by early settlers (as with most delicious foods). The bread was referred to as “pain perdu” which means “lost bread” in France. It was a and still is a great way to use stale bread before having to throw it away. There are so many different variations that you can make or you can stick to the classics like this FODMAP breakfast version. Challah, white bread, and sourdough bread are all popular french toast bread choices. I like to make a big batch of this breakfast treat on Sunday mornings and bring it to work for breakfast. What is your go-to weekend breakfast dish? If you’re looking for a super delicious pancake recipe, you’ll love this one.Print
Gluten-free french toast is the perfect weekend breakfast dish!
- In a medium-size bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar.
- Submerge bread into egg wash until both sides of the bread are covered. Repeat until all 4 pieces of bread are covered in egg wash.
- On a medium-high flat skillet pan, spray nonstick cooking spray. Add bread to the pan and cook on each side for 3 minutes for a total of 6 minutes.
Serve immediately. These have the perfect amount of sweetness that maple syrup may even be optional for you!
