This is my go to and all time favorite french toast recipe. I love using the Market side vanilla brioche loaf from Walmart. It’s super fluffy and has this ribbon of vanilla pudding custard running all throughout the bread. And once you soak it and fry it up in some butter it’s mouthwateringly delicious.
- 1 loaf Market side vanilla brioche loaf
- 3 eggs
- 1/8 tsp all spice
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp – 1/4 tsp of freshly grated nutmeg
- 1/4 cup half and half
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- Few tbsp Kerrygold salted butter
- In a shallow bowl add eggs, all spice, salt, cinnamon, vanilla extract, nutmeg, half and half, brown sugar and mix well.
- Slice the vanilla brioche into 1 inch thick slices with a serrated knife so it doesn’t squish the bread. (Should be roughly 8 slices)
- Soak the bread pieces for a couple minutes on each side.
- Heat a skillet on medium low heat, add 1 tbsp salted butter.
- Add the brioche to the skillet and let it cook for 6-8 minutes. Cook on really low heat so the egg mixture gets cooked on the inside.
- The second side will cook for about 3-4 minutes.
- After the first batch, lower the heat to low, add mother tbsp of butter, and add in the second batch of soaked french toast. Cook until golden brown on each side. (Should take ~4-5 minutes on each side)
- Serve with maple syrup and enjoy hot!
