Savory Gluten-free French Toast BLT

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.

  • 8 slices of bacon

  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 slices gluten-free bread
  • 4 lettuce leaves (romaine, Boston, or Bibb)
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup fresh chives, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

Cook bacon in a frying pan until golden and crisp. Drain on paper towels.

Hey - autoimmune thyroid and celiac disease are besties as far as I can tell.

Hey guys, I will try and keep this as short and concise as I can. About a year ago, I had a very long day at work and ate a lot of chicken wings and a very poor diet. The next week, I felt terrible. I head headaches, GI issues, fatigue and some muscle aches and nasal congestion. I thought it...

Hi Jmg - and anyone who is familiary with ranitidine (Zantac) Firstly, Jmg, I hope you don't mind my quoting your old post from last month to get your attention, but I wanted to speak to a fellow Brit as I'd value some advice from someone who knows how the NHS works. (I love the NHS by the w...

Thanks Marry. Your story is very similar indeed. I totally agree that the migraines are the worst symptom - the pain was terrible and there were times when I was almost convinced that I had a brain tumor. I'm glad you replied to my post because at least I can see that it's not all just in my...
