Savory French Toast

M A K E S  4  S E R V I N G S

You can still top it with a little marmalade or apple butter for a sweet contrast to the melted cheese.

2 large eggs, beaten

½ cup milk (cow's, rice, soy, potato, or nut)

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese or cheese alternative, such as Vegan Gourmet

1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

4 teaspoons unsalted butter or buttery spread, such as Earth Balance

1 homemade gluten-free French Baguette cut into ½-inch slices

¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese or soy alternative, such as Soyco

½ cup orange marmalade, apple butter, or fruit preserves of choice for topping



In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cheese, and chives. In a large nonstick (gray, not black) skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Dip slices of bread into the egg mixture and place them in the hot skillet.


Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until the toast is golden and crispy. Dust the tops with Parmesan cheese. Serve hot with a small dollop of marmalade, apple butter, or fruit preserves.
