Why You Should Try Our French Toast Recipes

Expert Tips from a Trained Chef

by Margo Townsend

French toast is a classic breakfast dish that has been enjoyed for centuries. It’s a simple and delicious way to start your day, and with a few expert tips, you can take your French toast to the next level. As a trained chef with years of experience making French toast, I’m excited to share my tips and recipes with you.

The Secret to Perfect French Toast

The key to making perfect French toast is using the right bread. I prefer using thick slices of brioche or challah bread, which have a dense texture that can hold up to the egg mixture without falling apart. If you’re using stale bread, it’s best to soak it in the egg mixture for a few extra minutes to make sure it’s fully absorbed.

Another important factor is the egg mixture. I like to use a combination of eggs, milk, and cream to give the French toast a rich and custardy texture. Adding a pinch of salt, sugar, and spices like cinnamon or nutmeg can also enhance the flavor.

Cooking the French toast is the final step, and it’s important to get it right. I recommend cooking the bread on medium heat to avoid burning it, and flipping it only once to prevent it from getting soggy. Use a non-stick pan or a well-seasoned cast iron skillet for the best results.

Creative French Toast Recipes to Try

Now that you know the secrets to making perfect French toast, it’s time to get creative with your flavors and toppings. Here are a few of my favorite recipes to get you started:

  1. Banana Bread French Toast – Use banana bread instead of regular bread for a twist on the classic dish. Top with sliced bananas and maple syrup for a sweet and indulgent breakfast.
  2. Cinnamon Roll French Toast – Take a cinnamon roll, cut it in half, and use it as the bread for your French toast. Top with cream cheese frosting for an over-the-top treat.
  3. Savory French Toast – Add shredded cheese and chopped herbs like thyme and chives to the egg mixture, and top with sliced avocado and bacon for a savory twist.
  4. Stuffed French Toast – Cut a pocket in the bread and stuff it with Nutella, peanut butter, or cream cheese before soaking in the egg mixture. Serve with fresh fruit for a balanced breakfast.
