GF French Toast with dried cherries almonds

I decided today that I need a good, hot and hardy breakfast to kick start my day. This weekend breakfast is a well earned treat.

I woke up starving for a BIG HOT GLUTEN FREE BREAKFAST!
So I decided to make GLUTEN FREE FRENCH TOAST WITH DRIED CHERRIES, ALMONDS, COCONUT AND HONEY  … what a mouthful!
This is how I put it all together … for a single serving
So Delicious Coconut Milk Unsweet
Ingredients
Earth Balance Non-Dairy Non-Soy butter
1 egg
cinnamon
Nielsen-Massey GF vanilla
1 thick slice of homemade Gluten Free bread
dried cherries
chopped almonds
coconut flakes
honey
Mix an egg in a bowl with about a tablespoon of Coconut Milk, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Dunk the slice of Gluten Free bread into the mixture and turn over to allow it to absorb. Put some butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the soaked slice of bread into the pan and cook on both sides for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat. Put 2 frozen sausage patties in a microwave safe bowl with a paper towel on top and cook for 1.5 minutes.
Put the Gluten Free French Toast on the plate and top with dried cherries, chopped almonds, coconut flakes. You can use any dried fruit – cranberries, strawberries, blueberries, apricots. You can also add any of your favorite nuts and seeds – pistachios, walnuts, pecans, cashews, pumpkin seeds. I like to add either local clover honey or blackberry honey to make everything glisten and just slightly sweet. Total prep time is 10 minutes. Try to get a bite with everything on it…don’t forget to pour an icy cold glass of coconut milk!
Salud!
