Stuffed French Toast is a Great Gluten Free Option
French toast is about as easy as it gets. Acquiring gluten free bread without making it yourself used to be about as tough as you can imagine. Trying to bake the bread yourself was no easy project either and certainly not one you’d want to undertake just to make a quick batch of French toast. I’m happy to report that this dilemma is becoming more of a distant memory. With countless quality gluten free breads hitting the marketplace, it’s easier than ever to just swing by your local supermarket and pick up a loaf to enjoy in your old favorite recipes. Let the stuffed French toast party begin my friends.

This Hub spotlights a chocolate raspberry cheesecake stuffed french toast with fresh raspberries on top. It starts with a few slices of whole grain gluten free bread. Simply spread raspberry jam onto one of the slices. Spread the other slice with a mixture of cream cheese, vanilla, and confectioner’s sugar and scatter on a few chocolate chips before closing the sandwich. Dip the whole sandwich into the standard concoction of eggs, milk, cinnamon and sugar, then pan fry this treasure in the usual manner. To serve it, sprinkle on some powdered sugar, fresh raspberries and a few more chocolate chips. Everyone is sure to love this indulgent breakfast.

A Word of Caution
I’d feel remiss if I didn’t offer a few words of advice to consider when preparing food for someone that can’t eat gluten. Extreme caution should be taken in regards to avoiding accidental gluten contamination. Dedicated jars of peanut butter, jams etc should be maintained so that crumbs from regular bread have not been introduced into the jars. Also you’ll want to establish separate dipping stations and frying surfaces to insure there is no cross contamination. Finally, be sure to read the labels of anything you intend to use in the fillings. Always be careful but have fun in the process.
