French Toast Bites
Everyone is going to love these gluten-free French toast bites. They are little pillows of cinnamon sugar Heaven!
They are surprisingly easy to make and can be prepared in 30 minutes. They are sure to be a meal your family continues to ask for again and again.
I personally love to prepare them for Christmas eve breakfast as a fun treat. They are great with maple syrup or with our mouthwatering buttermilk syrup.
Which gluten-free bread is the best?
The bread you choose for these little bites will definitely affect the end result. I love to use the Canyon Bakehouse mountain white bread. However, any of their varieties will work. They have a whole line of amazing products from shelf stable stay fresh breads to focaccia and brownie bites.
I’ve used their bread in lots of recipes but one of my favorites is this gluten-free eggs Benedict casserole with smoky hollandaise sauce. You can always count on their products to be so delicious that nobody would ever know they are gluten-free!
How to make gluten-free French Toast bites
Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Next, cut the bread into 1 inch cubes.
Evenly spread the bread on a baking sheet and toast for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk the egg then mix in the heavy whipping cream or whole milk.
Pro Tip: While milk works great in this recipe, I love to use heavy cream to make it extra rich and decadent.
Pro Tip: Be sure to start with eggs that aren’t too cold as well. I like to let them sit out for just 10 minutes or so before I start.
Place 1 T butter in a frying pan and heat it up. Submerge the bread cubes into the egg and cream mixture then shake excess off and place half in the buttered frying pan.Fry 2 minutes then flip and fry another 1-2 minutes.
Pro Tip: You can fry the cubes in oil but butter is much tastier! I recommend using real butter. Kerrygold is my favorite brand but Irish roll butter is robust as well.
Once cooked, coat immediately in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Repeat with the second tablespoon of butter and remaining bread in the frying pan and coat in cinnamon sugar mixture once the cubes are fried.
Pro Tip: You can use all white sugar but I love using a combination of white and brown sugars.
What other French Toast varieties can I make?
These gluten-free French toast bites are wonderful on their own but if you want to give them a festive flavor, use eggnog instead of whole cream. You can also add some nutmeg as well.
For Valentines, you can add a bit of natural red food coloring to the egg mixture to get pink little French Toast bites. You can also get creative with gluten-free extracts like coconut, almond and orange.
Just be sure not to add too much. One teaspoon should do it. However you choose to serve them, they are sure to be a hit!
