I lived in France for about 6 months and I don’t think I had French Toast once…I wonder if it’s like French fries and isn’t actually French…actually that might be a bad example because the quintessential French dish is steak and frites, so…never mind. In all honesty, all I remember eating in France was a metric ass-ton of cheese. I totally got spoiled, too, because in France they can age their cheeses a lot longer and in a different way than our prissy American food safety laws allow us to, and I’m no food scientist or anything, but whatever they do over there makes some damn good cheese.
Mmmmmmm cheese…for you folks who are OK with the Dairy Thang, I’m hoping to get a good Monte Cristo or Croque Monsieur up here soon.
For the rest of you just wanting a nice warm comforty weekend breakfast, I got you covered. You can use any Paleo-friendly bread for this one. I used leftover Cherry-Coconut Bread, but you can also use my favorite Paleo Banana Bread, or this recipe for one of the best basic breads out there.
5-6, 1-inch slices of a Paleo-Friendly Bread
1/2 c Coconut Milk
1 t Cinnamon
1 T Vanilla
Coconut Oil or Ghee, for frying
Beat the eggs, coconut milk, spices, and vanilla in a shallow dish. Dip the bread slices in the batter and allow excess to drip off.
Fry over medium heat in coconut oil or butter until golden brown. Top with butter and cinnamon.
