Brioche French Toast
I grew up eating savory French toast. It was something that you’d use a day or two old bread, and eat for breakfast before school, or on weekends. I still make them frequently, especially for our weekend brunch, but these are something else.
These are soft, sweet, and most definitely something that you should, and I repeat, you should add to your breakfast menu.
I found Chocolate chip brioche toast and I had only one thing in mind how to use them… And here it is my epic Brioche French Toast.
Brioche French Toast
- 4-5 large eggs
- 1 Cup 240ml Whole Milk
- 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
- Pinch of Nutmeg
- Pinch of Salt
- 2 tablespoons 25g Sugar
- 1 loaf day-old brioche sliced into thick slices (Mine are chocolate chip brioche toast)
- Butter for greasing a skillet/pan
- Syrup for serving
- Fresh fruit for serving
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, a pinch of salt and sugar; whisk well to combine.
Layer bread slices in a large baking dish and pour over egg mixture; let stand until the bread begins to absorb liquid, a minute or two. Carefully turn the bread slices (Use a spatula and carefully flip because it could easily rip apart) and let bread absorb liquid on the opposite side.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (93C). Place a baking sheet or ovenproof serving platter in oven.
Add 2 to 3 slices depending on the size of your skillet, soaked bread and cook until golden brown and crisp on a medium-high heat.
Turn bread around and cook until golden brown and crisp, adding butter as necessary.
Transfer French toast to baking sheet in oven to keep warm. Repeat process with butter, soaked bread, and butter again until all the bread slices are cooked.
Serve French toast immediately with fresh fruit and syrup!
I am using less sugar because brioche is sweet, and plus it contains chocolate chips with the addition of some syrup like maple syrup, for example, I really didn't want sugar attack after eating these.
I think 2 tablespoons of sugar is plenty. I found Brioche in Aldi -- I am not sponsored by them, but I feel that you should know where I got it in case you'd like some for yourself.
