Today started out up early and out to wally world to pick up an iron and board to iron my pretty new blouses (gave my old ones to daughter long ago) It turns out those pretty blouses have to be hand washed & drip dried-read wrinkles. I also got a food processer and kaki pants to go with one blouse striped that color. Turns out early morning is a great time to go, got 1st parking, 1st checkout and help! I had waited on my breakfast till I got home.
I had planned on turkey bacon first to help slow down digestion of the new French Toast recipe from a new cookbook I'd been wanting to try. I had planned a physically active day and felt good about my choice. A special treat, planned in advanced. I took my gluten free bread out to thaw before I left. So my first turkey bacon was better tasting to me than pork bacon. So good-right up until I upchucked it all. I was sick about an hour. I'm pretty sure from all the pollen this year with the drought & all. I exhausted myself and ended up in bed napping.
I didn't wake up till 3PM! So this delicious recipe from "200 gluten-free recipes" by Louise Blair ended up being my breakfast-lunch. Actually I've only had grapes and ginger tea ever since. It's almost midnight as I write. As a recipe review I am in love. I just didn't believe free bread would work-but it did. I did sub in stevia for sugar (just a pinch). I also had fresh raspberries on the side-though her sauce does sound divine and is included here. I'm hoping the protein in the egg was enough for my glycemic load. I had 2 crust less pieces, but GF bread is small. So I cut recipe in half but gave full here.
As a Gabriel Method eater these days I no longer fear butter (organic grass fed) or eggs( organic free range). As luck would have it the cutest tiny jars of low glycemic index raw (tiny honeycomb pieces & all) Acacia honey arrived while I was napping to use on my toast. I wanted these tiny jars to have to take with my when I go out. I know you will enjoy these. Thank goodness we don't count fat & calories on GM!!!
2 eggs beaten (best if can to use free range organic if can)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk ( another organic-free range splurge of mine-but then is it splurging when it comes to our health?)
I used a pinch stevia -the recipe called for 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 slices of gluten free bread
2 table spoons butter.
Wisk together the eggs, vanilla, milk, stevia, & cinnamon in a shallow dish. Place the slices of bread in the mixture, turning to coat both sides.
Heat the butter in a nonstick skillet. Use a spatula to remove the soaked bread from the dish and fry the slices for 2 minutes on each side (watch it maybe not that long) until golden.
For Applesauce & Raspberries:
to serve as an accompaniment, heat 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet, add 6 cored and sliced dessert apples, and fry for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkles over 1 tablespoon light brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 4 oz raspberries and cook gently for 1-2 minutes. Serve over the toast sprinkled with extra superfine sugar.
