Why Use Brioche for French Toast?

Brioche is a slightly sweet and pillowy soft type of yeasted bread that can be turned into the most irresistible French toast. It’s very good at soaking up the right amount of moisture while staying nice and fluffy. It’s soft enough to give you that classic French toast feeling, but it won’t get soggy like other breads.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Vanilla
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Brioche Bread: If you really want to make the tastiest French toast ever, you have to use my Homemade Brioche Bread.
  • Butter

How to Make Brioche French Toast

  1. Make Egg Mixture: In a pie plate or shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
  2. Melt Butter: Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat. You need 1 tablespoon of butter for every 2 pieces of bread. So if you can fit more pieces of bread in your skillet, add more butter accordingly.
  3. Cook: Dip the bread into the egg mixture, coating both sides, but not soaking it, and place on the heated skillet. Fry on each side for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining bread.

Tips for Perfect French Toast

  • Don’t Over-Soak the Bread: You want the bread to soak up a little bit of the egg mixture, but not become saturated. Simply coat it on both sides and fry!
  • Work in Batches: Don’t try to overstuff your skillet with bread to save time. The process will go more smoothly if you work in manageable batches.
  • Use Whole Milk: If you want your French toast to be super creamy, use whole milk.
  • Set Stove to Medium Heat: Be sure to fry your French toast over medium heat so it doesn’t scorch or dry out.

Topping Ideas

Feel free to top your French toast with all your favorite fixings. Here’s what I like to put on mine:

  • Maple Syrup: Who doesn’t love a helping of French toast that’s covered in pure maple syrup!?
  • Whipped Cream: There’s something so comforting and decadent about French toast topped with whipped cream.
  • Fresh Fruit: I love adding a handful of berries or banana slices on top of my French toast!
  • Powdered Sugar: For a pretty finishing touch, top your toast with a dusting of powdered sugar.

How to Store and Reheat Leftover French Toast

Store leftover French toast in a resealable bag in the fridge and enjoy it within a couple of days. You can also store it in the freezer to make it last for up to 2 months. If you freeze it, layer a piece of parchment paper between each slice.

It’s easy to reheat your French toast in the microwave, on the stove or in the toaster! If you freeze your French toast, make sure you let it thaw overnight in the fridge before reheating it.
