Unique French Toast recipes, including this Sourdough French Toast— a fun twist on a classic, with the subtle sourness adding a delicious contrast to the otherwise sweet treat.

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup milk (or half and half or heavy cream)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 6 slices brioche (or any bread- even stale bread!)

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, for frying

Directions

  • Crack your eggs into a shallow bowl and add milk, vanilla extract, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Whisk until combined to form your egg wash.
  • Add about 2 tablespoons of butter to a large frying pan over medium heat and allow butter to melt, tilting the pan to coat the bottom with butter.
  • Once your butter is melted, dip bread into the egg wash, one slice at a time, coating both sides and transferring immediately to the hot pan.
  • Allow your French Toast to fry until golden brown (2-5 minutes) before flipping and cooking on the other side.
  • Repeat for all 4-6 slices of bread, adding more butter to the pan as needed.

Pro Tips

  • Keep the French Toast warm in the oven at 200°F until ready to serve.
  • It’s best just to dip the bread in the egg wash, rather than letting it soak. This will help you avoid soggy French toast.
