Brioche French Toast-Thick slices of buttery brioche bread dipped in french toast batter and cooked on both sides until golden brown and toasty.
Why have regular french toast when you can have Brioche French Toast. The thick slices of bread hold up better when dipped in batter and the brioche bread is soft and buttery because, well it's brioche bread. Brioche bread has become pretty easy to find so give it a try.
French Toast Ingredients:
8 slices of brioche bread
Since brioche bread is so soft it's helpful to lightly toast the pieces before dipping them in the batter. I do this by placing the pieces of bread on a baking sheet and lightly toasting the bread for 3-5 minutes on each side. Dip each piece of bread in the batter for about 5 seconds, gently press down to fully cover the bread if needed. Place bread on a heated and buttered griddle or skillet and cook on each side until golden brown.
Brioche French Toast
- griddle or skillet
- 8 slices of brioche bread will also work with non brioche bread
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup milk
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- ½ cinnamon
- ¼ nutmeg optional
- 2 Tbsp butter
- Fresh Fruit optional
- Maple Syrup
- Preheat oven to 275°F.
- Layer bread slices on a wire rack that fits over a baking sheet. If you don't have a wire rack then just place on the baking sheet. Toast each side of bread for about 3-5 minutes on each side. You want the toast to just start to feel like it's getting toasty.
- In a mixing bowl beat eggs and add milk, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix all together to combine.
- Heat griddle to 350° or a skillet to medium-medium heat. Melt one TBSP of butter over cooking surface.
- Dip bread slices one at a time in mixture. Depending on how shallow your bowl is you may need to gently press the bread all the way into the batter.
- Cook for 2-3 minutes, depending how hot your cooking surface is, and flip and cook on the opposite side for 2-3 minutes. You want the outside to be golden brown and and the inside to not look runny.
- Repeat with remaining slices. Top with butter and your favorite toppings.
- I keep my french toast warm by placing the cooked slices back on the baking sheet they were toasted on and put in the oven that's at 275°F.
