Jump to Recipe

This is the best french toast recipe, and it is so easy to make! This classic recipe is perfect for a quick breakfast or elaborate Sunday Brunch. I chose to use sourdough bread for this recipe, but you can use the bread of your choice. The bread is soaked in a sweetened egg mixture and cooked to perfection.

Mixed Ingredients French Toast

Let’s Take It Step by Step

1. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar.
2. In a 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
3. Whisk cinnamon mixture, eggs, milk, and vanilla
4. Pour into a shallow container that you will be able to dip the bread into
5. Dip bread in the egg mixture. Make sure the bread is fully coated in the mixture.
6. Cook slices until golden brown (about 4 minutes on medium heat)
7. Flip to cook the other side (I choose to cook mine a little longer to get the slices extra crispy).
8. Serve with syrup, powdered sugar, fresh fruit (optional)

Variations and Options

*You can choose to use any type of bread for this recipe. I chose sourdough, but it will work with any kind of bread.
*I used Tongs to dip my bread, but you can also just use your hands, just make sure the bread is fully submerged and soaked in the mixture.
*You can add syrups, fresh fruit or powdered sugar to this recipe, I choose to have it plain with butter to take the flavors.

What We Suggest Pairing it With

  • Syrup
  • Eggs
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Pork roll
  • Ham
  • Cinnamon Honey Butter
  • French Toast Casserole (with leftover french toast bread/mix)

Helpful Hints

*The staler the bread, the better the French Toast – how convenient when you notice your loaf of bread is stale! I chose sourdough bread for my recipe.
*I cut my french toast in half slices for serving, but you can keep the bread as whole slices
*I used tongs, so my hands did not get dirty, but you can use your hands as well (one less dirty utensil)
*While you are cooking the french toast, stick the finished french toast pieces in the warming oven at 200 degrees F to keep the bread warm while waiting to finish the recipe.
*If you have leftover french toast mix make a french toast casserole, so nothing goes to waste.

Final Words

The recipe is fairly simple and can be easily made with readily available ingredients on hand. It’s also a delicious recipe that everyone will love any time of the day, but it’s usually best had in the morning topped with some cream and a nice coffee or fruit juice to pair up with.

While we do recommend you only make this fresh to feel the crispiness and the softness of the toast at the same time, you can also store it for longer. Just place all the slices in a single layer on a plate and send them to the freezer until they are nice and frozen. This should take about 30 – 40 minutes depending on freezer settings. Then place all the slices in an air-tight container or an air-tight bag and they are good for up to 2 – 3 months.

When you are ready to serve, you can use either of two methods to reheat the French Toast. One, you can send them to the oven over a baking sheet and let them bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 8 -10 minutes. Two, you can reheat in a microwave or a toaster. The toaster is better because the moisture will dry up and the French Toast will not be soggy. I hope the information in the article has been useful. Cheers and happy cooking.
