One of Matt's favorite little pleasures in life is breakfast for dinner aka "brinner". As a gluten free gal, breakfast can be very underwhelming if you are leaning more towards the sweet side of things due to the lack of yummy gluten free options. French toast has always been one of my favorites from when I was a kid so I figured if we were going to perfect something it should definitely be that. The bread is, in my opinion, the make it or break it on this one. Luckily, Matt and I actually found a pretty decent brand of GF bread that doesn't taste like cardboard. It is Schar Gluten Free Artisan Baker White Bread and we got it at our local Wegmans. We have some organic maple syrup from Trader Joe's which we can't get enough of and then we threw on some whipped cream and berries and called it a day. Matt is really into bacon so of course we had to have some of that on the side. I have to say that I think the bread really made this one a success.
What good would a breakfast be without a mimosa? Matt loves the classic OJ and champs mix but it can get way too sweet for me and the acidity and sugar mix just does not do well for my Crohn's. I do my own take on mimosas which I will share with you guys. It is a lot less sweet, very refreshing, and a lot better for you!
Here's what I do:
Cheers to a gluten free & Crohn's approved meal/drink combo. The best thing about this is you can have it for a Sunday brunch or a random Thursday dinner. Up to you and just as delicious at either time!
