|Eggy Bread Sandwich|
You could use any gluten free bread but I'm yet to find one that doesn't fall apart when handled, that's not going to work for this recipe. DS Gluten Free Ciabattas never let me down and despite lots of handling and a good soaking to soften, each slice remained fully in tact. I highly recommend them for this and in general.
So what's the Free From G take on French Toast? It's lots of finely grated Gouda in the egg batter.
We had these with hand carved Honey Roast Ham, a little Cheesy French Toast Sandwich.
You of course don't have to add the Gouda but for me and The Glutenite it's an essential ingredient, I didn't just want to replicate French Toast as gluten free, I wanted to put my own stamp on it, you can't go wrong with a bit of cheese.
3 DS Gluten Free Ciabattas
3 Large Eggs
1 Tablespoon Sour Cream
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Pinch Sea Salt
|Cheesy French Toast|

|Gouda Batter Mix|
- Slice each ciabatta into 3
- Dip a slice or 2 of ciabatta into the cheesy egg mix
|Holding Together Great|
- Leave to soak for a minute then turn over and leave for another minute
- Stack on slice on top of another and repeat the soaking process with each slice
|Stacked French Toast|
- Heat a frying pan on medium - high, add the butter and olive oil
- When the butter is melted and the oil is hot, place the slices of french toast in the pan, don't overcrowd, you'll need to cook in batches
|Mmmmmm If I Do Say So Myself|
- Cook for 2 - 2 1/2 minutes on each side or until golden

|Very, Very Yum|
Totally perfect for Sunday brunch, I have a feeling I'll be making these every week for a while.
