  • Press each slice of bread lightly into the milk mixture to coat both sides, removing it before it gets soaked.

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook coated slices in batches until golden brown and somewhat firm, 5 to 8 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

You can also brush the bread with the milk mixture.

Use Italian or sourdough bread instead of white bread if desired.

Substitute margarine for the butter if desired.

Hey guys, The trick to this recipe turning out great is a "Pastry Brush." Instead of dipping the bread,brush both sides with a pastry brush. This makes the toast extra crunchy and never soggy. It's delicious when done this way. Also, I make a quick Strawberry sauce to go over it. The pastry brush really brings out the true flavors esp.the butter. Try it and see. ????? Read More

Since I was out of vanilla, all I did was melt a tablespoon of butter on my griddle. Also, I read about the bread being soggy by dunking it into the milk, so I toasted the bread on the lowest setting before and it worked wonderfully. My picky 11 year old said it tasted just as good. Read More

My first two pieces of toast failed because a quick dunk quickly soaked my bread. On my second attempt I spooned the milk on and it turned out much better. Still kinda soft in the middle when I ate it but I feel like that's what makes it French toast. Topped it off with Nutella ?? Read More

First I only used half the cinnamon called for and it was plenty for me. I had some issues cooking this. I put my bread in quickly and did not soak it. I was able to get 2 extra slices out of the mixture.It says to cook over medium heat but 5 minutes on medium heat is way too long; my bread was burning at 3 minutes. I turned it over and did that side about 3 minutes and it was super soggy. For the next 2 I turned the heat down to medium low and cooked each side 4-5 minutes. Once I got the temp and cooking time down it was much better but it is still a bit soggy in the middle more so than with egg. Maybe a bit of flour added in with the milk would help. I made a slice with whole wheat bread and gave to my preschooler and she liked it a lot. Read More

I didn’t have eggs this morning and wanted to make French toast. I came across this recipe and read a review that mentioned to toast the bread beforehand. I can’t imagine what would have happened if I didn’t toast it! The French toast was still very mushy BUT my 2 year old and I still very much enjoyed it. It reminded me of the inside of a cinnamon roll. It is quite hard to flip though and does stick to the pan even with a significant amount of better. I should also add I non dairy milk which may have made it mushier. Read More
