How to make the EASIEST Brioche French Toast – perfectly golden on the outside, yet still soft, sweet, and buttery on the inside.
This Brioche French Toast recipe is perfect for Mother’s Day, Sunday brunch, Christmas morning, or any time you feel like having French Toast just because.
When we were kids and had a choice between French Toast and waffles, we almost always chose French Toast on the weekends. Waffles were a quick morning breakfast because they could be ready in minutes during the week. But French Toast, that was something special. Now, you can have either waffles or french toast for a quick morning breakfast!
Unlike our cinnamon French Toast, our Brioche French Toast is thicker and more hearty. Brioche is made with more eggs and butter, which gives it that rich flavor with a soft and light texture. It feels truly indulgent, yet we have made it into a healthier option for any day of the week.
The best part is this breakfast that reminds us of Sunday morning is ready in just minutes! Can you think of a better way to start your Monday?
Dress it up!
One of our favorite things about French Toast is the endless combination of toppings! More often than not, we will stick with butter and maple syrup as we did for Mom this year. However, sometimes we are feeling a little more spunky and want to deviate. That’s when we reach for things like sauteed bananas, powdered sugar, nut butter, and jelly, or even whipped cream! These toppings are almost always put out as a spread when we serve the Brioche French Toast to guests or on a holiday. You choose what you enjoy most and roll with it!
The ingredients list couldn’t get much shorter. You’re welcome. 😉
