French Toast [gluten-Free, Lactose & Casein Free]

“A delicious french toast recipe designed for use with gluten-free breads. It is lactose and casein free if you use ghee, or completely dairy-free if you use a dairy-free margarine (such as "Becel Vegan"). Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit. I made this with Food For Life's Brown Rice Bread but you can use it with any store-bought or homemade GF bread. Bon appetit!”
