How Do You Make Brioche French Toast from Scratch?
- In a large bowl add in the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, butter, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk well until everything is combined.
- Place a large skillet on the stove over medium-low heat. Add a tablespoon of butter to the skillet. (Keep adding more butter if needed to keep the skillet nonstick)
- Dip 1 piece of brioche into the egg mixture. Let soak for 5-10 seconds on each side.
- Immediately place in the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side then flip and cook for a couple more minutes until each side is lightly golden brown.
- Repeat with all pieces.
- Enjoy with powdered sugar, maple syrup, and fresh berries.
How To Store Leftover French Toast
If there is any leftover french toast, place it in an airtight container or ziptop bag and keep it in the fridge for 3-4 days.
This makes yummy leftovers for breakfast and snack throughout the week!
How to Reheat
To reheat french toast, place in a toaster oven on the "toast" setting for 3-4 minutes. Just until warmed all the way through. Using the toaster oven, not only reheats but crisps up the outside again.
You can also microwave for 10 seconds to reheat, it just will be a little soggy and not as crispy as it will be using the toaster oven to reheat.
How Do You Make French Toast Not Soggy?
The key to not having soggy french toast is 2 things.
- Do not over soak each bread piece. Each side only needs to be dipped in the egg mixture for 5-10 seconds. Any longer than the bread absorbs too much liquid and it will be hard to cook.
- Cook low and slow. If you have the skillet to medium or higher, the outside of the bread will get nice and toasty and done, but the inside will still be soggy and not cooked. Cook on medium-low heat to make sure the middle egg mixture gets wanted and cooked as well as a crispy exterior.
