Recipe Tips & Notes

Enjoy as is or serve with maple syrup or powdered sugar and fresh fruits!

It is common for french toast recipes to be made with day-old slices. This is because they absorb the eggy mixture better than fresh bread. Of course, a slightly stale gluten free loaf is certainly not a requirement. If you only have fresh gluten free bread on hand, that’ll work just fine too.

What bread is gluten free?

Wondering what is the best gluten free bread you can use for this recipe? It all depends on taste & preference. These are some different bread options you can try!

Should you toast bread before making french toast?

It is recommended to use stale gluten free bread or toast the bread until it’s golden-brown first.

When making gluten free french toast, the bread needs to be sturdy to hold up to the egg mixture. If the bread is fresh from the bag or you toast it too lightly, the finished dish will be soggy. Soak the toasted or untoasted bread for about 10 seconds per side to achieve the optimal texture.

    Great, classic gluten free french toast. I really enjoyed the taste, although I would probably use less nutmeg next time. I used the rest of a loaf of Promise brioche bread that we had bought the night before, so that made it extra tasty. I also cover the pan with a lid so the middle will also cook.

    This is a great, simple recipe for gluten free french toast. If your using thicker bread or are soaking the bread for a while, I would suggest covering the griddle or pan with a lid. This will cook the inside of the bread, making it less soggy….I also prefer to use butter or margarine in the pan rather than oil, gives it more flavor.

    Really good! I thought of it as pancake when I ate it , terms of texture, which is awesome as it didnt have a rubbery texture that some catch with the egg

    Everyone LOVED this French toast. I normally dont like homemade frnch toast because it always has a egg taste to it but this recipe didnt have that at all. It tasted delicious! I doubled the recipe to feed my fam of 7 and did half milk half heavy cream and it came out perfectly.

    I liked how easy it was to make and how delicious it was. And I would suggest Thicker Bread would be a great idea .
