Our Favorite French Toast Recipe

French toast is a favorite in our house, my girls ask for it at least twice a week, and not just for breakfast! We have made it differently over the years but have finally perfected the recipe & will never go back.

The trick to making the best French toast is using good bread & making the perfect egg & milk mixture so that you get a crispy outside but a custard like center! We use fairlife ultra-filtered whole milk not only because it has an extra creamy consistency but it provides a bit more protein (and less sugar!) into our otherwise sweet breakfast! 50% more protein and 50% less sugar than regular milk, to be exact!

Our Favorite French Toast Recipe
One Loaf of Cottage Bread or Sourdough Bread
3 Eggs
1 Cup fairlife Ultra-Filtered Whole Milk
Splash of Vanilla
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 pinch of salt
2 tbsp. butter

In a small bowl, whisk together 3 eggs, 1 cup of fairlife & splash of vanilla. Sprinkle in cinnamon and salt and set aside. In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp. of butter until melted. Soak each piece of bread in mixture evenly until soggy & place in hot skillet. Flip once & make sure each side is browned. Add more butter as necessary until desired number of slices are cooked. Top with fruit, syrup & a sprinkle of powdered sugar! 🙂 Best served with a cold glass of fairlife! You will end up with a deliciously sticky mess, but it is so worth it!

    I’ve got a French Toast gamechanger: maple syrup! Add maple syrup in your egg mixture, like 1/4 cup. The syrup cooks in the bread…DELICIOUS!
