Categories: Meatless Monday

It's the time of year when the chill makes you want to snuggle up in bed and stay there forever. One way to guarantee you'll get up is a hot, sweet breakfast -- like French toast. We like to use actual French bread for this recipe...you'll see why once you try it.

This recipe was adapted from the Betty Crocker French toast, but that one isn't vegan, so we tweaked it.

I'll never get the whole vegan thing.  How is milk vegan but eggs aren't?  Confused.

 @Denver Dave I used coconut milk and neglected to mention that in the recipe. So it really is vegan ... apologies!

 @Denver Dave I think there's some kind of semi-vegan thing going on in this recipe. Maybe some other form of "milk" could be used: almond, soy, rice, etc.

 

I'm curious about what egg-replacement powder is made from.

 @Denver Dave Just answered my own question. From the Bob's Red Mill website: whole soy flour, wheat gluten, corn syrup solids, algin (from algae). Yum.

 @Mantonat Vegans must have amazing masochistic tendencies.  Why would you intentionally commit yourself to such a punitive dietary regime?  To quote Auntie Mame, "Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death".
