Having company this coming weekend means I’m trying to put together a menu that everyone can enjoy. But I often get stuck on whole food breakfast ideas. It seems like they’re the hardest to come up with, don’t you think?
Since Travis and I deal with candida overgrowth, we stick to the things we can eat: bacon and eggs (which I LOVE and could eat every morning for the rest of my life), but the kids like a little variety now and again.
One of their favorite breakfasts is Baked Sourdough French Toast. They like it because it’s yummy to their morning tummies. I like it because:
1. it’s sourdough – so it’s healthier for them (you can find Old World style sourdough starter at Natural Leavening)
2. it’s baked – I don’t have to stand and flip over each individual piece
3. it’s super-duper easy to throw together
4. it has cinnamon in it – and I just like cinnamon 🙂
Baked Sourdough French Toast (candida-diet)
10 slices of sourdough bread
1 1/2 cup milk (or milk substitute)
1/3 c. raw honey (you can replace this with about 1 tsp. stevia, or to taste, instead)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. frozen blueberries (or other fruit)
1. Grease a 9×13 pan.
2. Place your slices of sourdough bread in the pan.
3. Combine milk, eggs, honey (or stevia), vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour the mixture over bread and refrigerate overnight.
4. The next morning, nearly all the liquid will be soaked into the bread. Sprinkle on a handful of blueberries or other fruit, if desired.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
If you’re looking for a simple recipe you can throw together the night before and have ready and waiting when the troops wake-up, give this a try.
