French Toast

Happy Easter!  French Toast used to be one of my favorite breakfast, but I got out of the habit of making it when I had to go on a gluten free diet.  (I like corn tortillas more than most gluten free bread, so I don't have bread very often.)  When I woke up this morning I remembered that I had bread in the freezer made from the Whole Foods brand 365 gluten free bread mix (it's practically identical to the Gluten Free Pantry favorite sandwich bread mix, tastes the same but cost a little less.  Both of these are favorites when I'm making bread from a mix.)  The Easter Bunny left a carton of eggs in the refrigerator that we hadn't colored yet so we decided French Toast would be the perfect beginning to a beautiful Easter Sunday.  French Toast is so easy to make.  Here's how:

Easy Gluten Free French Toast
(makes 6 pieces)
1 egg
1/3 - 1/2 cup milk (depending on how egg-y you like it.)
1/8-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
dash of nutmeg (optional)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Heat skillet to medium.  Combine ingredients in shallow dish that fits a slice of bread - I usually use a dinner plate that has steep edges.  Spray skillet with cooking spray, dip both sides of each bread slice in egg mixture and place on hot skillet.  Continue this process until skillet is covered.  Turn bread over when its light brown (about 2 minutes) and cook the other side until it is brown.  Continue process until all of the egg mixture is gone (about 6 slices). Serve immediately with syrup or your favorite toppings.
