Best Brioche French Toast Recipe
Brioche French toast, pan-fried and then finished in the oven, is topped with browned butter and maple syrup in this decadent brunch dish.
This French toast recipe is different because it uses flour. I have given it to some friends and they've all liked it better than the French toast they usually make!
Put the ooh-la-la into your French toast by using real brioche, the eggy, buttery bread from France. Unsweetened strawberry sauce helps cut the sweetness, and whipped cream amps up the richness. It's a special French toast for a special occasion.
I have made this several times now, and have made it my go-to French toast recipe. As long as I can get the brioche bread from WalMart, I make this recipe exactly as written, beause it is hands down the best French toast I have ever eaten. I did not think ahead to dry my bread out overnight, but I put it in my toaster oven for 15 minutes at 250 degrees, which dried them out and allowed them to soak up the egg mixture. My bread slices puffed up very nicely in the oven, giving them a lovely custard-like texture. I did have some egg mixture left over, so we will happily have French toast again tomorrow! I served it with bacon and orange slices. I liked another reviewers idea of serving with bananas, too.
The French toast was delicious. I used less nutmeg than the recipe calls for and added a dash of cinnamon. I did not add the browned butter for the sake of time . I made 8 slices and still had plenty of the mixture remaining. Next time, I’ll make the a whole loaf. The brioche bread is key; don’t skip it.
With the brown butter sauce in addition to the brioche and maple syrup, I just found this too sweet. I think I’d make it again but top it with some fresh fruit instead. I did like the effect of the 10 minute bake on the “toast”.
Loved the added touch of nutmeg to my favorite winter morning comfort food..I added cinnamon & brown sugar instead of white.. This French Toast is Absolutely Heavenly on the Brioche bread
Definitely will make again. Thinking about making some more right now .
Made exactly as recipe directed and it was delicious.
