But french toast isn't that great for you.
So when I sat down to figure out what to have for lunch, attempting to be good and eat a THM lunch, I came across my THM recipe for S bread that's made in the microwave. Bazinga.
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup + a dribble of half & half
3T almond flour [the original recipe calls for coconut flour, but I like the taste of this better]
scant 1/4t baking soda
shake of salt
Mix, microwave for 3 minutes. [Microwave times may vary.] You can make it in a round container or square, making it thicker and cutting it in half thick-wise, or in a longer, more shallower container (like I did this time), and cutting it in half width-wise. (I've used a round, deeper container in the past, and it works just as well.)
French toast batter
half & half -- I never measure when I make this batter. I pour in enough to cover the bottom of whatever dish I'm using by about 1/4 to 1/2" or so
dribble of vanilla
cinnamon to taste
Beat in a dish that has enough space to dip a piece of bread lying flat. I usually use a pie plate or a square plastic storage dish (like the size of a sandwich).
After the bread comes out of the microwave, I chilled it in the fridge, hoping it would hold together better in the batter. (better butter batter...hehe)
I started some coconut oil melting in the frying pan. I started loosening the bread from the plastic container and set it on my plate, and cut it in half using my pancake turner. Usually I use a fork when dipping my *regular* bread in the french toast batter, but with this being a "wetter" bread (because of the egg), I found my fingers worked better.
First half after turning it. I turned it another time or two to get it a little more brown.

Dip it in the batter and fry it up as usual! And, because it's an S meal, butter and peanut butter on top are a GO! :) [Make sure to make any peanut butter or syrup sugar-free to make it a true S.]
