In today’s post: Learn how to combine simple ingredients for the most delicious French Toast you’ve ever tasted! It’s ridiculously easy to make and tastes just as good for dinner as it does for breakfast.
French toast is one of our family’s favorite easy meals! It’s perfect for weekend breakfasts when everyone has a little extra time to linger together at the table. But French toast really shines when you need a super fast weeknight meal that doesn’t take many ingredients – you probably always have what you need on hand to make this simple supper. All you need is:
NOTE: You might be wondering at the addition of flour in the egg mix for French toast, but believe me, it works! A little flour thickens up the egg mixture so it coats the bread better, giving you fluffy, perfect French toast just like you’d get at your favorite breakfast restaurant.
NOTE #2: You might be used to putting sugar in your egg mix, but you really don’t need it! Adding cinnamon and vanilla gives the toast so much rich baked-good flavor that you won’t miss the sugar, especially if you top your toast with fresh fruit, syrup, or a dusting of powdered sugar.
What Kind of Bread Should I Use?
French toast is an easy recipe that you can make using any bread you happen to have on hand, but I do prefer using thick sliced white bread. My local Costco carries a large loaf of super soft, thick white bread that cooks up beautifully. If you are buying bread specially for this recipe, try to find a thick sliced loaf. But if all you have on hand is thinner sandwich bread, no worries! That will work great too.
Be aware that this recipe makes about 8 slices of toast, but that yield will vary depending on what type of bread you use. If you use large, thick slices, you might only be able to make 6 pieces with this amount of egg mix. If you use thin sandwich bread, you may be able to make 12 slices.
How to Make French Toast

- Preheat a griddle to 350 degrees F. If you don't have a griddle, heat a wide skillet over medium.
- In a large shallow dish, whisk together milk, flour, cinnamon and salt. Whisk in eggs and vanilla.
- Dip a slice of bread in the egg mixture and turn it over to coat. Remove bread to griddle and cook about 3 minutes until golden brown, then flip and cook about 2 more minutes until cooked through.
Can I make more or less?
Yes! Absolutely. French toast is super easy to double or triple if you want to feed a crowd, or to pare down if you just want a few slices for yourself. For a single serving (two slices), just whisk 1 teaspoon of flour into 2 tablespoons of milk. Add a 1/4 teaspoon each of cinnamon and vanilla, one egg, and a tiny pinch of salt.
