What is French Toast?

A classic French toast recipe is made by cooking or baking bread that has been dipped in a seasoned cream and egg mixture. But unique gourmet French toast recipes can be easily created using all kinds of ingredients like fruit & preserves, or even spreads like peanut butter or Nutella! Make your French toast as fancy as you like!

How to Make French Toast Easy

For perfect results every time, use thicker pieces of bread—like the donuts we use here— or mix things up and use challah.

Even a plain baguette cut into thick slices makes excellent French toast. The bread needs to be thick enough to soak up the batter without getting soggy.

  1. For this recipe, we sliced the donuts in half (like a bagel) and dipped each half into the batter, pressing down to allow the donut to soak up more batter.
  2. Fry the pieces in a greased pan. When both sides are crispy and brown, arrange the French toast pieces on a serving platter.
  3. When all of the pieces are cooked, drizzle the glaze over the donuts and serve immediately.

For a Unique French Toast Casserole

  1. Make an easy and unique French toast casserole by arranging the donut halves in a greased casserole dish. Pour the egg mixture overtop.
  2. Bake in an oven preheated to 350°F for about 25 minutes or until the tops of the donuts are brown and crispy. 

French Toast Toppings

  • Fresh or frozen berries are the perfect topping on French toast. Sprinkle frozen berries with sugar, then microwave until berries are warm and release their juices, for a delicious and super quick berry syrup!
  • But don’t forget to try other toppings like toasted nuts, chocolate chips, or even crushed Oreo cookies!
  • Freshly whipped cream warmed maple syrup or preserves are always a delicious topping, too!

What Goes With French Toast

We love to serve our version with fruit kabobs or chocolate covered strawberries and maybe a healthy smoothie. Bacon or sausage on the side always tastes great too!

  1. I just love french toast! I had the best french toasts ever on the Island of St. CROIX I wish I would of ask them how they made it my mistake! So if you ever go to St Croix try staying at the Hotal Klay in the middle of the ocean just a lovely place! We took the taxi boat every morning to the Island. We walk of the deck went to the right and had breakfast every morning in a small restaurant that was up a few steps over looking the dock and ocean beautiful and they had the best french toast ever! That was 27 years ago! I’m going to try this french toast it sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing!
