French Toast Bites (Gluten-Free)
These gluten-free French toast bites are an easy and delicious breakfast that is perfect anytime but especially on Christmas morning.
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 loaf of gluten-free Canyon Bakehouse bread
- 1 C heavy whipping cream or whole milk
- 3 eggs
- 2 T butter
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- dash of allspice
- 2/3 C brown sugar
- 2/3 C white sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut bread into 1 inch cubes
Evenly spread on a baking sheet and toast for 15 minutes
Meanwhile, whisk the egg then mix in the heavy whipping cream or whole milk
Place 1 T butter in a frying pan and heat it up
Submerge 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
Once cooked, coat immediately in cinnamon sugar mixture
Repeat with the second tablespoon of butter and remaining bread in the frying pan and coat in cinnamon sugar mixture
Serve up with warm syrup
Be sure to shake the extra egg and cream mixture off before coating in cinnamon sugar.
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.
If you want to make this dish more festive, use eggnog instead of cream or milk.
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!
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.
