French toast is a great meal for the family. It’s quick, easy, and very tasty. It even feels fancy because it’s something you probably don’t have very often.
Until this morning, I had yet to figure out how to make a THM-friendly french toast. I kept having thoughts to do it with sprouted toast, but I didn’t love that idea because of how dry it tends to be.
Then my mother-in-law gave me a brilliant idea – do it with sourdough toast. Perfect!
This goes perfect with pretty much any fruit. I stuck with berries, but you could easily do cooked apples, peaches, bananas, pears, or anything else you can think of.
As an E-meal, stick to a turkey or chicken breakfast meat, if you’re using it. I just happened to have some leftover maple chicken breakfast sausage from Trader Joe’s.
Quickie French Toast (THM E)
- 4-5 slices sourdough bread
- 1 egg
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 packet Truvia
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- butter or maple extract, optional
- berries, or other fruit
- lean breakfast meat
- coconut oil spray for cooking
Combine the egg, egg white, milk, Truvia, cinnamon, and flavors (if using) in a small, deep bowl. One by one, press the slices of sourdough into the egg mixture. Leave it a few seconds on each side, to soften the toast, and place directly onto preheated griddle sprayed with coconut oil. Cook on each side until golden brown. Sprinkle with Swerve confectioner’s while still hot, and top with sliced berries.
Serve with homemade, or your favorite store bought on-plan, syrup and cooked breakfast meat. One serving is two small pieces of french toast.
