Easy Like Sunday Morning

French Toast Rebooted

I love French Toast. Except probably like most people, the making two slices or maybe four slices at a time and keeping them warm while the rest are made is not ideal. One day I was spending time in a Youtube Death Spiral and came across a video by America’s Test Kitchen. For just over six minutes, I watched how their new method of making French Toast was going to make my life easier. I figured I could spare nearly seven minutes if I truly could make French Toast in a more efficient way. I bet my mother would have loved to have had this recipe when she was making French Toast for the five of us. She actually had to cook for six as my 6’7″ father always ate for two.


8 slices hearty bread

3 eggs

2 teaspoon packed brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix spices well into eggs.

Add to the egg mixture,

2 tablespoons melted butter. MAKE SURE IT IS COOL FIRST.

1 cup milk

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Pour in the custard mix and place the slices of bread.  Allow to soak 1/4 inch on both sides. (I had to add more bread to soak up all of the custard.) Place rack on the lowest position in a 425 degree oven for 10 – 15 minutes. Check for browning. Switch oven to Broiler and move pan 4 inches from the top. Broil for 1 – 4 minutes until brown on top. Remove from oven and flip to steam the top side. Serve with your favorite toppings.

    1. If I am not mistaken, the video says that the recipe can be made a day in advance. Don’t quote me on that but I seem to recall a snippet of a comment toward the end of the video. Thank you for commenting.
