Gluten Free French Toast and Fruit

I've been craving French toast, and realized that I do not have a traditional gluten free French toast recipe on this site. I have a savory version and a make-ahead casserole version that I created using Udi's bread. However, this time, I used my homemade gluten free oat bread recipe. It's our favorite in our house. I hope you enjoy this recipe. It's a higher in protein than most French toast you'll find in restaurants.

Gluten Free Raisin French Toast

My father is visiting with us and is 100 years old. While he enjoys my newest Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Bread Recipe, he finally admitted that he doesn't appreciate the harder crust which is a result of long baking in my bread machine. He's always enjoyed soft food, but as he ages, soft food is a requirement. He's never even care for his bread toasted, just warmed, not brown or golden. So, I thought I would soften the ends by making him French toast this morning instead of dry toast and his awful cream of wheat (he's not gluten free). The acidic fruit has been getting to him anyway.

To speed up the process I soaked the bread overnight. This way it was all set to fry up in the morning. Caring for an elderly parent is a lot of work and mornings are pretty busy. A hearty breakfast is crucial as this is when they have their largest appetite.

It is very popular now to serve savory dishes that are usually sweet. I have been wanting to create a savory french toast for sometime now and finally did. I believe the type of bread you use sets a tone for this dish. You must use a gluten-free bread that is soft in texture and has holes in order for the egg mixture to be absorbed. I used Udi's Gluten-free White Sandwich Bread. As soon as I started soaking the bread in the egg I could smell a sweetness to it which is not what I originally wanted. I find that most soft textured gluten-free breads are higher in sugar than heavier breads. I look forward to making this with Udi's Gluten-free Whole Grain Bread and see if it is as sweet. However, I do have to say this was a tasty dish!  Adding the fresh ripened peaches tied it all together. This would make an ideal and easy brunch!
