I love brioche bread and French toast has always been my favorite to make. My husband, AJ and I would sometime battle between French toast and pancakes. Needless to say, he is a pancake lover. However, I am a French toast gal!
I often win the fight :-). What’s not to love about a crispy toasts that’s covered in syrup, fruits and maybe powdered sugar.
This recipe is easy to make. It is a classic breakfast recipe that can feed a family with no real work.
What Makes Brioche Different To Most Breads?
Brioche bread is perfect for French toast because it holds well when soaked in the egg mixture. It is filling and satisfying.
We do not like a bread that cannot stand the weight of the egg mixture when making French toast.
Brioche compared to other bread, is very good because it is tough and it soaks well. It’s a thicker bread but not tough to cook or work with.
How To Prevent The Brioche Bread From Being Soggy?
A good French toast meal does not include a soggy bread. In fact, the bread is lightly crispy and yet soft.
It doesn’t taste like it was submerged in eggs, but instead, lightly coated with eggs and cinnamon.
The key to not having soggy bread is to lightly toast the bread before dipping it into the egg mixture.
By toasting the bread first, this ensure you to have a crispy French toast every time while the inside is still soft.
- 4 slices brioche bread – Do not miss lightly toasting the bread. It will keep the bread from falling apart and being soggy.
- 3 large eggs – Help keep the bread together and allow it to “toast”.
- ½ cup milk or heavy cream – Used to mix the ingredients together.
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt – Balance out the sweet flavor.
- Butter – make the bread crispy on the outside.
- Fruits to garnish optional
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
How To Make It?
When ready to make this dish, toast all the bread and set them aside. You can cut the bread in half diagonally or leave whole.
Mix all the ingredients. Dip the bread into the egg mixture, then add it to the buttered skillet.
Cook until golden brown on both sides. Place in the oven at 200 degrees to keep warm while you finish the other slices. Serve with your favorite syrup and fruits.
How To Store Your French Toast?
When it comes down to brioche, it is known for the dense texture that doesn’t fall apart. However, it can go stale just like other breads, which is why it must be stored in a plastic bag, or you can wrap it tightly in aluminum foil to retain its moisture.
Having said that, you can only store brioche bread in the refrigerator for three to four days. On the other hand, there is no way you can store the cooked French toast as it’s not a healthy choice to make.
What To Your French Toast With?
Honestly, brioche French toasts are incredibly delicious on their own but serving it with maple syrup, and fresh berries will only add to the flavor.
On the other hand, if you are trying to create a breakfast spread, serve it with coffee or fresh orange juice. In fact, setting some scrambled eggs and turkey bacon on the side is also a great option!

I made French Toast this morning. Publix had Sara Lee Brioche bread on a BOGO this past week and I bought a loaf. Looking at the loaf in the wrapper I said to myself, “This would make great French Toast.” And then I ran across your recipe for French Toast using Brioche bread. I used my recipe but followed your tips of using Brioche bread and giving it a light toast which I had never done before. It was a great idea! The other thing I did for a change was make the egg and milk mix in a bowl and then poured it on to a rimmed sheet pan and dipped all 4 slices at once. Much easier than one at a time in a shallow bowl. Thanks for the inspiration from your recipe.
Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I will definitely use the method of pouring it on to a rimmed sheet pan. This will save me so much time! Thanks again. Appreciate your comment.
The french toast looks so amazing! I am literally drooling! Love all those tips!
Thank you, Geetanjali.
