French Toast ... Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free

Another change in the road ... dairy-free.  I've suspected my youngest child has an issue with dairy, and recent tummy woes have confirmed those suspicions.  I have one unhappy kiddo on my hands.  This is the kid who thinks Rumiano organic cheese is the best thing in the entire world and no other food group exists. *sigh*

He has been requesting french toast for breakfast to replace his usual dairy loaded meal.  This is a quick and easy way for me to honor that request...

2 large organic eggs
1/2 cup orange juice (I use Uncle Matt's organic, pulp-free)
1/2 tsp. organic ground cinnamon
Gluten-free bread (I use Rudi's Original gf bread)

Whisk the first 3 ingredients together in a shallow bowl or dish, coat the bread slices thoroughly on each side, and cook over medium-low heat until both sides are golden (the cinnamon makes it look sort of "burnt" rather than truly golden).  I can't put butter in the skillet, so I just pre-heat my stainless steel skillet and any sticking is minimal.  Serve with organic maple syrup.

My kiddo who is not gluten-free enjoys this same recipe using Rudi's organic sourdough bread.  Win-win!

  1. This looks fabulous. We don't have the need for gluten or dairy free recipes, but I love the idea of the orange juice instead of milk! Thank you.
