Smoked Salmon French Toast Sandwich


This quick recipe is a great way to use up old bread. Serve with wine and a nice side salad for a bistro-style meal. For a vegetarian option, substitute slices of Granny Smith apples and old Cheddar cheese for the smoked salmon and cream cheese. You can substitute Italian seasoning for the herbes de Provence, if desired. You can use any artisinal-style bread in place of the French bread.

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ tablespoons milk

  • 1 pinch herbes de Provence, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 4 slices day-old French bread

  • ½ cup fresh spinach leaves, or to taste

  • cream cheese

  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, or more to taste


  1. Whisk eggs, milk, and herbes de Provence together in a shallow bowl.

  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, dip bread in egg mixture, turning once to coat bread completely. Transfer coated bread to prepared skillet and cook in hot butter until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer toasted bread to a paper-towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining bread slices.

  3. Cook and stir spinach in the same skillet until slightly wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Spread cream cheese onto 2 slices of toasted bread. Top each with spinach and smoked salmon, and place remaining slices of bread on top.
