Baked Brioche French Toast

We’ve had a bunch of neighborhood kids spending time with us this summer, since summer school isn’t in session and most summer camps are cancelled. It’s been a daily challenge to feed them something they all enjoy!
One morning, I had several dozen eggs in the fridge, so I asked the kids if they wanted to have BREAKFAST for lunch! They were SO excited about it! I made this Baked Brioche French Toast, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit and bacon.
Although the past few months have been challenging, I’m finding that there is plenty of simply joy in coming “back to basics” in our daily lives.
Our neighbors have become like family, supporting us and helping us with everything from childcare to grocery runs.
Can I make this recipe Dairy Free?
Yes! If you want to make dairy free French toast, I recommend using vanilla almond milk.
It’s delicious, and nobody will be able to tell the difference!
Traditionally, French toast is fried in the skillet. I chose to bake it because I had a LOT of other items to cook for the kiddos on the stovetop, and I needed this Brioche French Toast to be hands off.
This baked French toast recipe is best when baked for 6 minutes per side.
Remember to flip it, or you’ll end up with one “crunchy” side and one “mushy” side!
One of the reasons kids love baked French toast like this Baked Brioche French Toast recipes is that it’s fun to top! You can top it with syrup, powdered sugar, fruit or whipped cream!
What’s the best type of bread for French toast?
I LOVE using brioche bread for French toast. It’s high butter and egg content make it a rich, fluffy choice that holds the custard very well!
If you don’t have brioche, try French bread, sourdough or Challah!
For bonus points, if you have a kitchen torch, lightly hit each side of the toast to turn it into Crème Brule French Toast. Delicious!
