    Celiac.com 07/14/2015 - French toast and BLTs are two of my many favorite things to eat. This recipe combines both to deliver a fresh, savory spin that will sure to dazzle at brunch and sizzle at lunch. Think of it as a sensible French toast, or a decadent BLT.

    The key is finding a good gluten-free bread for the French toast. I use a locally bought sourdough made from long-fermented sorghum that works great. The bread I use tends to be dense and moist, so I actually toast it lightly first, then dip it and then batter and cook it. Whatever bread you choose, I’m sure this recipe will please.

    It's good to hear things are more or less under control now. Sounds like quite a medical ordeal you have been through and a long winding rode. Thanks for sharing. So many more medical problems are autoimmune based than most people realize...
    Like I said I may also have a wheat allergy, if so, bonus because it is an early warning.   That being said, I have 40+ years of dealing with autoimmune disease, and my undergraduate studies are in physical and biochemistry. Admittedly ...
    Didn't in tend to be condescending if that's how it came off. I'm just going based on the science of a celiac reaction. As far as I've been able to find there's no proof that a celiac can react to gluten that hasn't reached the small intestine...
