Easy French Toast
One of my favorite things about this french toast is how fluffy it is! It’s almost like biting a cloud (one sweet cloud) so it goes deliciously well topped with something fresh and sweet.
What To Serve On Top French Toast
While berries are a staple around here this recipe goes deliciously well with banana coins and a caramel drizzle as well, or with coconut flakes and a couple of chocolate shavings. The list truly goes on and on! Grab any of your favorite french toast toppers and pile it on.
The best thing is that they are super easy to make and you can customize them a lot to fit what you are currently craving and what you have in your fridge. They can be also a great weekday breakfast for those days when you are feeling extra indulgent or when you need a boost of happiness to tackle what seems like a rough week (we’ve all been their friend).
Another thing that I love is that they are super minimalist, there’s nothing fussy about them, you don’t need to have a pantry filled to the brims to be able to make them just a couple of basics.
I mean you can use some bread that’s but to go stale, eggs, a splash of milk and a dash of sugar and you are all set. I like to consider it the most delicious frugal breakfast ever invented (and one of the fastest to cook as well!).

What Do You Eat French Toast With
Serve with any of your favorite breakfast creations. Whether a homemade smoothie, side of sausage or scrambled eggs. You can pair almost anything with french toast and it will work well!
What Is The Best Bread to Use For French Toast
You want a bread that is a little dried out. If you use regular sandwich bread let it sit out overnight to dry out a bit. Then it will soak up the egg and milk mixture better, offering you a more custard center, vs mushy texture.
Can I Freeze Leftover French Toast
Yes! Simply allow the french toast to cool down, and then lay out on a baking dish, and flash freeze for up to 30 minutes. Then transfer to a sealable freezer bag or airtight container. Then store up to three months in the freezer.
How to Reheat French Toast
We generally heat it up in the microwave. I find it offers great texture, then top with berries, syrup, or a slab of butter. Or if you want a different route, lay bread on a baking sheet and warm up in the oven. Just watch so it doesn’t overcook.
Why is French Toast Soggy
The key to french toast is watching a few variables. Make sure to quickly dip the bread into the egg mixture. If you leave it set too long it can result in a soggy toast. Also, use a drier bread as I stated above. It offers more of a chance to cook without being overly wet from the egg/milk mixture.
How Long Does French Toast Last
You can store french toast in the fridge for 3-4 days. It is, of course, best to be eaten day one, but it will store in the fridge. This can be a great way to meal prep for busy weekdays when your hustling to get out of the door in the mornings.
