Keto French Toast Recipe
Eating French toast on a low carb diet? Not only is it possible, it’s easy and delicious.
Our keto French toast recipe will have you smiling from ear to ear and make breakfast times so much less stressful.
The History of French Toast
In the irony of all ironies, French toast actually pre-dates France. The breakfast treat actually goes back all the way to the Roman Empire.
The French term for the dish is pain perdu, or “lost bread.” This is a nod to the use of stale bread to make French toast that otherwise would have gone to waste.
It’s a food with many colorful names, including German toast, poor knights’ pudding, Bombay toast, and my personal favorite, eggy bread.
Thankfully, modern French toast recipes have worked out some earlier kinks. In the 1660s, preparations left out the egg soak in favor of a mixture of wine, sugar, and orange juice.
When to Eat French Toast
In my opinion, anytime is a good time to make this keto French toast recipe. Don’t trap yourself into thinking this is only a breakfast food.
Breakfast for dinner – brinner, if you will – let’s you enjoy a traditionally morning food at a time when you’re not worried about rushing of to work or run errands. I find that it helps change things up when you get bored with your recipe rotation.
In terms of seasons, fall and winter beg for warmer breakfast foods. It’s hard enough prying yourself away from the warm embrace of your blankets on a frosty winter morning. At least a warm breakfast provides some comfort.
If you want to get even more specific, there’s an actual holiday honoring this ancient breakfast bread. In the U.S., National French Toast Day is celebrated November 28th.
How to Make Keto French Toast
Start with your Keto almond bread (see recipe here).
Slice this to form 4 large slices (slice in half lengthwise so you end up with 4 slices that look like regular bread slices).
Then dip the slices into your egg mixture and fry.
