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
  • 8 slices tomato
  • 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
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Coarse salt

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

Are you substituting something for the PPI? I'm not sure what meds will mix well with it, but you could ask the pharmacy or Dr. for advice on what might work. I'm thinking you stopped something that may be helping in some ways, and are now allowing your symptoms to return. If so, it makes ...
