  • French toast that will rock your world

    I have such a sweet tooth! Oy! And I'm not supposed to eat chocolate? Most candies have some sort of problem ingredient. Here's some french toast I make though. It is kind of sweet, but generally very flavorful and delicious which can sometimes be hard on the IC diet:

    The bread (this is important):
    Hawaiian sweet bread, cut into nice thick slices

    The mixture (this is for one very large slice, good for one person, multiply for feeding extras):
    1 egg
    Splash of milk
    3/4 tablespoon cinnamon
    1/2-1 tablespoon white sugar

    Whisk it!

    Dip in the bread and heat on a pan or griddle. I do not use pam or butter and it does not stick. I lightly spread on butter after and top lightly with powdered sugar.

    It does not bother my IC, but I'm not sure if the bread would bother anybody who is extremely diet sensitive. Make sure to check the label.

    Have had IC symptoms since childhood, but did not seek serious treatment or become diagnosed until I was in college.

    I've had a cystectomy with an Indiana Pouch. It was a success and has helped my symptoms and pain immensely.

        I'm glad you two think it looks good. It is sweet, but sometimes it's nice because many other meals I have for IC are on the blander or oily side. Usually I use sandwich bread; I think what truly makes the difference if you can't tolerate the Hawaiian sweet bread is using a thick, fresh, fluffy bread because the egg mixture really settles into the nooks and crannies well :o)

          I like using challah (braided Jewish bread) for French toast. A local bakery here makes one that's great by itself, with butter, or turned into French toast....
