Cinnamon French Toast 2 Ways

I have been experimenting a bit with low carb breads and the traditional cinnamon French toast recipe. I have two (or more, depending on your view) ways to make it with low carb bread choices. One uses the ever-popular Atkins roll or Oopsie roll as the base bread or my variation of it, Rene’s Egg Bread Roll. The other uses the low carb muffin bread from New Hope Mills mixes. The NHM bread is delicious so the French toast has the added taste of blueberries or cranberry orange from the mixes, but you could add dried blueberries or craisins plus sweeteners to the Oopsie Roll to add more flavor in to those. These recipes don’t take into account any additions to the Oopsie Roll or Egg Roll, so you would need to adjust if you decided to add them.

Cinnamon French Toast

1 Egg
1 tablespoon Heavy Cream
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1 tablespoon Water
1 drop liquid Sucralose
1 tablespoon Butter for cooking
4 Oopsie rollsl or Egg Rolls or slices of NHM Muffin Bread

In a small bowl or pie tin, beat all ingredients except butter together. For Oopsie roll or Egg Roll, poke holes in the bread with a fork, then soak in the egg mixture, turning over to make sure both sides are coated. It may not absorb a lot of the mixture.
For muffin bread, just soak in the egg mixture, being sure to coat both sides.

Heat a skillet or griddle, reduce to medium heat, and melt the butter, spreading around a little. Place the coated bread on the butter and cook for 2 or 3 minutes until the egg coating is cooked and lightly browned, then flip to cook the other side.

Butter and serve with sugar free syrup or a low carb jam, if you like. Or you can just sprinkle a little sugar substitute on the top for sweetness.

Makes 4 slices. The Oopsie and Atkins Rolls are suitable for Atkins Phase 1. The Egg Bun (which uses Carbquick or almond flour in it) and the New Hope Mills are suitable for Phases 2-4.
