Kid-Friendly French Toast

Brinn's French Toast

A creamy and custardy French toast loaded with flavor and protein.

Recipe by Sandy and Mae Pike, Home Cuisine

active time
10-15 Minutes to mix
soaking time
1 hour or overnight to soak 
cooking time
10 Minutes

4 thick slices of artisan bread
½ cup low fat milk
1 cup Greek yogurt — plain or with fruit
2 large eggs
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp butter
Fruit for topping

Topping Options:
• warmed applesauce
• your favorite jam
• maple syrup
• honey
• a dusting of powdered sugar

Bread Suggestions:
• Whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread (shown here)
• Cranberry walnut bread
• Cinnamon Swirl bread

Artisan bread can be found at local bread shops such as Breadworks and Blue Dog Bakery as well as the bakery section of your grocery store.

1.  Slice bread into four 1¼-1½” thick pieces.
2. In a medium size bowl, mix together the milk and Greek yogurt. Add one egg at a time and whisk
into the milk and yogurt mixture.
3. Add the cinnamon and whisk until well incorporated.
4. Pour the liquid mixture into a baking dish and add the slices of artisan bread.
Flip each slice over once to coat each side of the bread. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour, or better yet, overnight. The longer your bread soaks in the liquid mixture, the more custardy and flavorful your French toast will taste.
5. Add 1 Tbsp butter to a frying pan and melt on medium-low heat. *If your child is helping with this part, she will need supervision.
6. Add the slices of bread and fry on each side for 3-5 minutes. Check frequently to ensure the cooked side does not burn. Flip bread over when the cooked side is a golden brown color.
7. Once both sides are golden brown, remove from the pan and place on a plate. Top with fresh fruit.  Serve hot and enjoy.
