Brioche French Toast
French toast so good that it’s not just for breakfast. Tasty, rich, and sweet brioche adds a world of flavor in this simple, go-to recipe.
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup (125 mL) milk
- ¼ tsp (1 mL) orange zest
- ¼ tsp (1 mL) vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
- 8 slices Brioche bread, 1/2–¾" (1–2-cm) thick
- Optional: Powdered sugar, maple syrup, mixed berries
Set the Deluxe Electric Grill & Griddle to 'GRIDDLE' in the Flat position.
Whisk the eggs, milk, orange zest, vanilla, and salt in a shallow bowl.
When preheated, add the butter to both plates.
Dip 1 bread slice at a time in the egg mixture, coating both sides, and place on the griddle. Cook until golden brown, 1½–2 minutes per side.
Serve with syrup or powdered sugar and berries, if you’d like.
