Busy AM French ToastCourse: Breakfast, dessertCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
I always make French Toast for my kids. I love the brand Pasquier Brioche loaf. You can buy plain or if you are feeling decadent you can buy the chocolate chip brioche bread. I usually stick with plain and have a loaf on hand as a staple.
This recipe is easy, delicious and really just made up on ingredients I had on hand. My kids are hungry the minute the get up the morning. So this with sliced bananas and berries always makes a delicious breakfast.
3 large eggs
2 cups whole milk or 1 1/2 cups milk and 1/2 cup heavy cream/half and half
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 pound brioche bread, sliced
4 Tablespoons butter or olive oil, for cooking
Powdered sugar or maple syrup and sliced fruit
- In a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the bread, powdered sugar and maple syrup. Pour the milk mixture into a shallow baking dish.
- Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add 1 Tablespoon of the butter or oil in-between each adding more bread to the pan. Allow to melt or get hot
- Place a couple pieces of bread in milk mixture and flip over so both sides are have soaked in some of the mixture. Place in a hot pan and cook about 2 minutes per side until lightly browned. Repeat with remaining pieces of bread.
- Keep warm on a warmed plate or on a cookie sheet in the oven if making before. Serve with powdered sugar or warmed maple syrup.
- 1 loaf gives me enough to feed the kids for 2-3 days. Once the French Toast has cooled, I store them in a sealed container in the frig. The next morning toss in a toaster oven and reheat. They are still delicious.
