Tips, Tricks, and FAQs

  • Add a little vanilla extract to the egg-milk mixture.
  • Try this recipe with other cereals like corn flakes or Captain Crunch with Berries or Peanut Butter flavor.
  • The best type of bread to use for French toast is stale bread or day-old. Thick slices of Texas toast, challah bread, French bread, or plain sandwich white bread are all great choices in place of the brioche.
  • Substitute heavy cream, half and half or plant-based milk in place of the milk.
  • Any favorite fresh fruit and whipped cream would be even more decadent to add to the top of the slices of French toast.
