I haven’t made French toast in ages and just needed a quick reminder what to put in the egg mixture. I would have forgotten the milk. Also i added vanilla extract. Me and my 2 sons love this as a dinner treat now and again
I made this casserole with Trader Joe’s sliced brioche bread and it was downright deliciousness!
I’m not much of a cook which is why I searched for a “simple” French Toast recipe. FOUND IT! ONly difference is I included cinnamon sugar in both the batter and after the toast was ready. My very picky grandson ate it all. Thanks for sharing
Fantastic, Keisha, I’m delighted you (and your picky grandson) liked the French toast!
can’t find some of the ingredients like orange zest and cinnamon in my kitchen so i had to improviseturned out good enough (i think) :D
The best and so easy. I halved the recipe (worked out fine) and used the triple sec, Brioche bread, Irish butter, Canadian maple syrup and sliced peach on top. Just yummy.
Cest Bon from South Louisiana. Like this recipe. Topped it off with Confectioners Sugar. I have used it on different French breads that we have available. It worked on all of them.
We loved this recipe the first 2 or 3 times. Somehow, the next few times, the casserole came out super dense. Any ideas for getting it less dense?
Glad this has been a hit with your crew! Have you perchance used different bread the last few times you’ve made it? That might be the culprit.
Yes, so this last time, I made it with the same bread as before when it was beloved. Still dense. Anything else to try?
Too much cinnamon, and very bland, I honestly would try a different recipe, to make it taste slightly better add a splash on vanilla
Terrific recipe! I’m sure many folk have had their interest in cooking rekindled during “lockdown”, even if shopping is a bit of a challenge! I pretty much followed your recipe but added a little double cream and vanilla essence to the milk. Topped with sliced banana and a drizzle of Maple syrup this makes for a truly epic recovery snack after the daily exercise quota !!
Your routine sounds good to me, John! Keep on exercising and having cooking adventures.
This was good! I like that it didn’t have that super thick and eggy texture/taste — it was very light french toast that captured the texture of the bread well. I used orange zest and a 1/2 tsp of vanilla in the egg mixture and topped the toast with a squeeze of orange juice, syrup, and strawberries.
Great with grand Marnier and vanilla
I’m not the best cook but boy did this recipe make me look good! Simple but oh so scrumptious
Made cut for my wife on Mother’s Day, got rave reviews! Super easy, and absolutely delicious.
I loved it! So delicious and would definitely recommend to my friends.
Wonderful Nikola, I’m so glad you like it!
A fantastic recipe! We used blue curacao for the Triple Sec and ended up a with delicious “green eggs and ham” effect. Half and half instead of milk and fresh french bread for light and fluffy results if you need to.
I needed a French toast recipe as I had a slightly stale country white sourdough that needed to be used today. Made without cinnamon (glaring omission but having to make do with a limited pantry), but added the fresh orange zest and dry curaçao. So delicious! It was the first time making French toast with artisan bread so next time, I will let the pieces soak a bit longer before adding to the pan. The orange flavor was absolutely lovely and we didn’t miss the cinnamon at all.
Best French toast I have ever had
I used a brand name “country style” white bread. 4 eggs plus 1 cup milk would have made about 7 pieces as the bread slices are large. I have been making french toast for decades and could never quite figure out what I was doing wrong. I was not using enough eggs. This recipe helped push mine over the top! I also use about 2 tsp of Vanilla. Thanks for the help!
Wonderful Glen, I’m so glad that helped!
If I am not making a lot of french toast should i still use 4 eggs?
Halve the recipe, and if you need more egg-milk mixture, just beat inanother egg and some milk. French toast is easy to eyeball.
OMG HEAVEN IS IN MY KITCHEN THIS IS SO Heavenly it good every morning great way to start you peacefully day
