Ingredients to make Brioche French Toast
Let’s start by gathering the ingredients we need to make my Brioche French Toast recipe. In Chef Speak, this is called the “Mise en Place,” which translates to “Everything in its Place.”
Not only does setting up your ingredients ahead of time speed up the cooking process, it also helps ensure you have everything you need to make the dish.
How to make Brioche French Toast
- Add the whole milk, large eggs, ground cinnamon, and vanilla extract to a large bowl.
- Whisk the ingredients to combine thoroughly.
*The cinnamon may clump a bit or rise to the top. Just do your best to mix it as much as possible.
- Place a griddle pan or large frying pan on the stove over medium-high heat (on an electric griddle, set the temp to 350 degrees F.).
- Add half a tablespoon of butter onto the griddle, letting it melt and spreading it around the surface of the pan.
- Dip the bread into the egg mixture, turning it over to get both sides.

- Place the dipped bread on the hot griddle and cook for 3-4 minutes until golden brown.
*If you like cinnamon, sprinkle a little extra after placing the bread on the griddle.
- Turn over the French toast to cook the other side. Let the bread cook until both sides are golden brown.
You can serve the brioche French toast with just a sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar.
Or take it to the next level of deliciousness with butter and warm maple syrup.
For an extra special treat, serve this breakfast classic with a warm berry topping and homemade whipped cream.
Store any leftover Brioche French Toast in an airtight container refrigerated for 1-2 days.
Thick, sturdy bread like brioche, challah, or a dense loaf of white bread, like Texas toast, is ideal for making French toast. These types of breads will absorb the egg mixture without falling apart.
To keep your French toast from being soggy, avoid soaking the bread in the egg mixture for too long. Just a quick dip on each side is enough. Using day-old bread can also help, as it’s less likely to absorb too much liquid.
Yes, French toast can be made in advance and reheated when ready to serve. You can also freeze it in single portions and reheat it in the oven or a toaster.
