How to make French toast

Our Brioche French Toast recipe below is a classic, and we’re sure it will fast become a staple in your cooking repertoire! It’s easy to make, and as long as you’re stocked up on our Brioche Loaf, you’ll likely already have all the ingredients in your pantry.

It’s also simple to customize your French Toast recipe. You can switch out regular milk for your preferred substitute, and choose your favorite frying oil instead of the butter. There are also so many options when it comes to what to eat with French Toast.

We’ve suggested berries with our recipe, but swapping these for whatever fruit is in season makes for a perfect breakfast or brunch dish. Try stewed apples for a fall brunch recipe, or check out our Blood Orange French Toast recipe – a spooktastic Halloween breakfast idea!

Our classic recipe uses our plain Brioche Loaf, but you can also get a bit creative here too. Try our Cinnamon Twist French Toast recipe for something extra special, it uses our Brioche Cinnamon Twist loaf. Orwhy not get inventive and try something with our Chocolate Chip Brioche Loaf, too? Our Brioche Loaves are designed to be soft and slightly sweet, the perfect base for French Toast and loading up with your favorite breakfast toppings!
