The best french toast ever is also the easiest french toast ever! Made with fluffy bread like brioche or challah and dipped in sugar and cinnamon – you’ll want to make this delicious breakfast recipe at least once a week!

Whenever we have spare time on weekend mornings, we love to cook a big breakfast. Weekdays can be hectic, and we may only have time for on-the-go breakfasts like muffins, or wolf down a bowl of cereal before rushing out the door. But when the weekend rolls around…it’s everyone’s french toast! We’ve been perfecting this recipe and can now confidently say it’s the best French toast ever. We like to take it up a notch by using white bread, brioche, or Texas toast instead of plain old white bread. It’s especially delicious when covered in berries, syrup, and whipped cream. Top with whatever you like and be ready to serve a second batch.

What kind of bread should I use for French toast?

You can use any kind of sliced ​​bread to make the best French toast ever. Choose to use baguette or other bakery-style breads, or even simple sandwich bread. But (as mentioned) if you want this recipe to really stand out, we recommend using homemade bread, Texas toast, or brioche.

Can I use egg whites instead?

You can definitely do it! If you want to make this breakfast recipe a little lighter, you can substitute 2 egg whites for each egg.

Do I have to use a baking sheet?

While a skillet is an excellent choice for French toast, you can also opt for a regular skillet. That said, because the bakeware is completely flat and allows for more room, it’s a great option if you have one at home! If you do use a skillet, we like to use nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron.

Service suggestion:

Serve your perfect French toast with your favorite syrup, fresh berries, or a dollop of whipped cream. Expert tip? For French toast that will absolutely blow your mind, use our Liquid Cinnamon Roll Syrup recipe. It will surprise you!

Freezing Instructions:

Let the French toast cool completely. Then transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can stack the toast by placing some parchment paper between each layer. Freeze until set, then place in an airtight container (or bag) and return to the freezer. It will keep for 1-2 months. Reheat in the microwave or in the toaster for about a minute!

Storage and Reheating Instructions:

If you have any leftover perfect French toast that you don’t want to freeze, you can store it in the freezer in an airtight container. It stays on for 4-5 days. Likewise, reheat in the microwave in 30-second intervals until heated through, or in the toaster.
