We love special breakfasts for the weekends and holidays like Easter and Christmas morning. Some of our favorites are Crepes, my son’s favorite Eggs Benedict, classic Quiche Lorraine, and of course French Toast because it tastes like dessert for breakfast.

The Secret to the Best French Toast

Try this method once and it will become your go-to batter and method for cooking French Toast.

  • Batter consistency – adding the extra egg yolks creates a thicker and richer batter that will cook up better and prevent soggy toast.
  • Sautéing in hot butter crisps up the edges
  • Oven-finished – transferring the toasts to a hot oven keeps the toasts warm for serving all at once, plus it sets the custard in the center. You’ll even see them puff up in the oven.

Ingredients

This recipe feeds a crowd and will make 8-10 slices (depending on the size of your bread slices). It’s also easy to cut the entire recipe in half for a smaller batch. Scroll down to the print-friendly recipe card to see the detailed ingredient list.

  • Eggs – use 6 whole eggs and 2 yolks for a richer batter.
  • Milk – any kind will work (see substitution ideas below)
  • Salt – balance the sweetness
  • Vanilla extract – or use bourbon, rum, or brandy for variety.
  • Cinnamon – our favorite spice, but you can also add a pinch of nutmeg
  • Honey – adds sweetness to the batter. You can also substitute it with sugar.
  • Butter – use unsalted
  • Bread – 1 lb of thick-sliced bread (see options below)

Best Bread for French Toast

You can use any thick-sliced bread. Sweet bread like Challah or Brioche are favorites, but a plain Texas toast also works great.

  • Brioche bread – a buttery rich sweet bread that soaks up batter well
  • Challah – a slightly sweet Jewish bread that’s similar to brioche with a high egg content making it ideal for soaking up the batter.
  • Easter Bread – our raisin-studded sweetbread
  • Texas Toast – convenient since it comes pre-sliced into thick slices.
  • White Country Loaf – slice this up into 3/4″ thick pieces
  • Sourdough – the spongy and sturdy texture is perfect for soaking up the custard without getting soggy.

Pro Tip for Bread: This recipe is the best way to use up bread that is a day old and a little dry. If time allows, set your bread slices out onto a wire rack to air dry for 1-2 hours before using.

How to Make French Toast

This is a simple breakfast to make. Watch the video above and you will be a pro in no time.

  1. Slice bread – into 3/4″-thick pieces and preheat the oven to 275˚F.
  2. Egg mixture – In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, yolks, milk, salt, vanilla, cinnamon, and honey until well blended. Transfer to a casserole dish.
  3. Preheat skillet – set a large cast-iron or heavy skillet over medium-low heat and melt in 2 Tbsp butter.
  4. Soak Toasts – just 30-40 seconds per side.
  5. Sautee French Toast – transfer to the hot buttered skillet and sautee 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown.
  6. Bake – transfer toasts to a baking sheet and keep them in a 275˚F oven while sauteeing the remaining toasts. Once all of the toasts are done, bake another 10-15 minutes to set the custard.

Common Questions:

Can I make this a baked french toast casserole?

Yes, follow the baking instructions for French Toast Casserole Here.

Can I substitute the milk?

Any kind of milk (1%, 2%, or whole milk), half and half, or heavy cream will all work great. You can also use dairy-free milk such as coconut milk or almond milk.

Can I make French Toast in the Air Fryer?

To make it in the air fryer, spray the air fryer basket with nonstick spray. Place soaked toasts in a single layer and air fry at 400˚F for 8-9 minutes flipping halfway.

Can I use croissants?

Croissant French Toast is the ultimate treat. Cut in half, then dip and sauté the same way as any other bread.

Is French Toast really French?

French toast dates way back to the Roman empire and was called pan dulcis – a bread soaked in a milk and egg mixture, then fried up. According to this source, it has since become popular in the United States as French Toast with the word French used as the verb “to French” or “to Slice.” So the naming of French Toast really means Sliced Toast.

How to Serve French Toast

Sometimes keeping it simple is best and we often just serve it with maple syrup and butter. If you really want to make it more interesting, try our Bacon Pecan Caramel French Toast for a fun way to change up your breakfast routine.

Pro Tip: For Cinnamon Sugar French Toast, combine 1/4 cup sugar + 1/2 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle over your warm toast.

Make-Ahead

  • To Refrigerate: Allow the cooked toast to cool completely to room temperature then store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
  • Freezing: Arrange cooked and cooled toasts on a baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours then transfer to a freezer-safe bag for easier storage. Thaw in the microwave for 45-60 seconds, or thaw in the refrigerator overnight
  • To Reheat: warm on a skillet, or in the air fryer or toaster until hot.

French toast slices drizzled with maple syrup
This French Toast is quick and easy to prepare and is a genius way to use up leftover bread. It's a hearty and satisfying breakfast and perfect to feed a crowd.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients 

Servings: 9 slices of French Toast
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp warm honey
  • 1 lb bread such as Challah, Brioche, or Texas Toast, (about 8-10, 3/4”-thick slices)
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, to saute toasts

Instructions

  • Slice your bread about 3/4" thick, and arrage on a wire rack for 1-2 hours if time permits to dry out the bread slightly. Preheat the oven to 275˚F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, yolks, milk, salt, vanilla, cinnamon and warm honey until well blended and honey has dissolved. Pour into a casserole dish that fits 4 pieces of toast at a time, or as many as will fit your skillet at a time.
  • Preheat your skillet over medium-low heat and melt in 2 Tbsp butter.
  • Dip 4 pieces of bread into the egg mixture at a time and soak for 30-40 seconds per side depending on the thickness of the bread. Remove bread slices from egg wash letting excess drip back into the dish then place the bread slices into the hot skillet and sautee for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown.
  • Transfer to a baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm at 275˚F. Repeat step 4 with remaining toasts, adding more butter as needed. Once all are sauteed, keep them in the oven for another 10-15 minutes for the custard center to fully set then serve warm with your favorite toppings.

    Growing up, my dad made an amazing French Toast recipe. I always looked forward to it as a kid. Sadly, he never shared his recipe with me and this is the recipe that comes the closest to what he made in terms of texture and flavor. His was just a lot more cinnamon-y. Definitely a keeper and so glad I’ll have this in my arsenal to make for my kids once they start eating more whole, solid foods. Especially since it makes such a large quantity and freezes well!

    Let me preface this by saying that I don’t usually like French Toast. However, this recipe has made a French Toast lover out of me. If I could give it ten stars, I would. I think the extra time in the oven eliminates the “raw” egg taste that was my problem. I cut the recipe in half for just hubby and me, used brioche and it was perfect! My husband thanks you, Natasha, because now he will get French Toast again soon.

      The serving size can be found at the beginning of the print-friendly recipe card (located at the bottom of the recipe post). The nutrition label shows counts “per serving.” Hope that helps!

    Orange Zest and a little Orange Juice made a nice addition to the custard.

    I’m in the process of making your Kulich right now and plan to bake some of it in a regular loaf pan to use for French Toast on Pascha morning. I’ve always used Kulich baked by one of the ladies at church before, but this year she was unable to make it.

    Oh! Cheese Pascha makes a wonderful topping for Kulich French Toast.

    A bit early, but, Christos Voskrese!

    You should try just a pinch of nutmeg in your mix……it just enhances the flavor of the toast.

    Last night I made your brioche bread and it turned out perfect. Today I made french toast out of it and it was a hit! I’ll be making both again next time we have a family gathering. Tasty and so easy to make. Love your recipes and often browse the site when I don’t know what to make ☺️

    Thank you and ‘behind the scenes crew’ for making it happen, lots of work goes into it I’m sure 💚

        Hi Andreana, I did improve it recently when we also shared a video tutorial. We reduced the temperature so it’s less risk of overbaking one batch while the second batch sautees on the stove.

    I used less sugar and didn’t add cinnamon to the egg mixture, but i tossed them in sugar and cinnamon when i took them out of the oven, they were amazing! Thanks for the baking idea

      Hi Melissa, You can refrigerate it and use it the next day or make some extra and freeze the french toast. You can also make a small French Toast Casserole with it. In the future, it’s totally ok to cut this recipe in half if you want fewer toasts.

    Forgot the honey but I think it was sweet enough instead added Israeli sea salt a pinch of nutmeg and a little cinnamon and sugar also vanilla extract the pure not the imitation first fried it in butter and a little oil then drained on plates and then popped them in the oven wow I must say gurl they give off a certain taste where it’s very yummm and super crispy gotta make it like this again thanx @ usual Natasha always adding more to my cooking and baking repoirtoire love it
