Truly make breakfast the most important meal of the day with my perfectly crispy, chewy, and easy Brioche French Toast recipe.

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: French
Servings: 5 servings
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 2 ½ cups (20floz/565ml) full-fat milk
  • ½ cup (4floz/115ml) heavy cream
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • ½ cup (4oz/115g) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 10 thick slices (about 1 inch) of brioche
  • butter for the skillet
  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk milk, cream, egg yolks, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and nutmeg until well combined.

  2. Place a few slices of my brioche recipe (or store-bought) in the egg mixture. After 2-3 minutes, gently flip the slices in the mixture to soak the other side.

  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Generously butter the skillet and add your soaked slices of brioche. Cook 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Repeat the soaking and cooking with the remaining slices of brioche.

  4. Serve warm with maple syrup, cream, and fresh berries

  5. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Rewarm on a buttered skillet on the stove or microwave for a minute.
