Gluten Free Spiced Vanilla French Toast with Fresh Strawberries)

I went to the cupboard, To give my poor child a breakfast: When finally there, The cupboard was not yet bare, only 7 items were there, And so the poor girl had to wait to see what her Mom could make, out of these 7 magical Ingredients.

I woke up this past Sunday Morning with the following Ingredients in my Cupboard/Refrigerator: Strawberries, Powder Sugar, Loaf of stale Gluten Free Bread, 1 egg ,Vanilla, Cream and only a 1/4 cup of milk and some spices. Plus I scrounged up some brown and serve sausage in my freezer which I happened to purchase at the 99 cents store.

So What Did I make ?
Cinnamon spiced Vanilla French Toast with Fresh Strawberries
Gluten free bread of choice
1 egg
1 pint of Strawberries sliced ( For Garnish)
Powder Sugar (For Garnish)
1/2  cup Whipping Cream
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon All Spice
 1 teaspoon Butter for Grill

1 Large Bowl
1 Whisk
A frying Pan or a grill


Heat grill and place butter on.

Take one egg crack in Large Bowl and whisk until well blended add Coffee Mate and Milk plus Cinnamon and Allspice. Whisk together until well Blended

Next Slice Bread on the diagonal this way the slices are a lot larger and I feel it looks a lot prettier too.

Take Bread and float and flip in egg mixture then fry or grill on greased pan cook on low until golden then flip. Repeat on both sides.

TIP OF THE DAY: Make sure Eggs are completely cooked through! The reason I say this is salmonella poisoning. I really want to stress that you need to make sure that your eggs are completely cooked!!! I like to put my french toast inside the oven after I cook it for 20 minutes at 250 degrees. This way my bacon or sausage is hot when I serve and my fruit is freshly cut.


When finished place on plate with French Toast and Strawberries on top I served with Sausage but you could also do Bacon if that’s what’s in the Cupboard/Refrigerator
Bon Appetite, Enjoy !!
