Instructions Checklist
  • Cut the bread into 12 slices. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, Irish whiskey, Irish cream liqueur, and vanilla extract until well blended.

  • Heat some of the butter in a skillet over medium heat until the butter is hot and the foam has disappeared. Press each bread slice into the egg mixture, then fry in the hot skillet until nicely browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Add more butter to skillet as needed. Brush each slice with butter, and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

Awesome flavor! These were perfect for our Patty's day breakfast. I followed the recipe except some leprechauns turned ours green! My kids loved them and my husband said they melted in his mouth. These will definitely be tradition for us from now on. I served them with breakfast sausage white cheddar cream eggs and homemade hash browns. Thank you for a great recipe. Read More

I added a splash of milk because I don't like my french toast too eggy. Also I didn't have confectioner's sugar so when I put the toast on the griddle I sprinkled a little turbinado sugar and nutmeg on the face-up side and when I flipped it the sugar caramelized so the toast had a lovely flavor and crunch. This was delicious - the best French toast I've ever made! Read More
