The BEST breakfast treat is this easy Brioche French Toast! It’s made by dipping rich, soft brioche bread in the most delicious homemade orange honey flavored custard. This French toast will make any morning instantly special.

Ingredients
  • 1 loaf brioche bread (or challah) (I get mine from Trader Joe's)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Unsalted butter or cooking spray for cooking
Instructions
  1. Preheat large, nonstick skillet or griddle over medium low to medium heat.

  2. In a large shallow bowl or dish, whisk together eggs, milk, honey, orange zest, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter onto pan or spray pan with cooking spray. Add the slices of bread to the dish and soak as many slices in the egg mixture as possible for about 1 minute, turning if needed to completely soak the slices.
  4. Transfer soaked bread slices to hot pan or griddle and cook for about 1 minute per side or until golden brown on both sides.

  5. Remove French toast from skillet or griddle to a baking sheet. Keep cooked French toast pieces warm in a 200 degree oven.

  6. Continue this method until all slices of brioche bread have been cooked.
  7. Serve French toast, warm, with powdered sugar, whipped cream, or maple syrup and fresh fruit or any other desired toppings.
Recipe Notes

How To Store Leftover French Toast

French toast stays good in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. You can store it in an airtight container or zip-top baggie in the refrigerator. To store in the freezer, wrap the slices individually in plastic wrap or separate the slices with parchment paper, then place all slices in a gallon size freezer bag.

Reheating French Toast

The easiest way to reheat French toast is in the toaster oven. The French toast will come out perfectly crunchy and golden brown. If you’re starting with frozen French toast, you’ll want to add about 1-2 minutes more to the toasting time. You can also reheat in the microwave or in a skillet or on a griddle.
