Ingredients

  • 1 (16 oz.) loaf brioche bread 1-inch slices
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • cup half & half
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • teaspoon salt
  • salted butter for serving
  • maple syrup for serving
  • fruit for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat a griddle to 275°F.
  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and yolk. Add the half and half, vanilla extract, sugar, salt, and cinnamon and whisk until fully incorporated with the eggs.
  • Place a slice of brioche face down in the bowl, then flip, covering both sides of the bread with the egg mixture. Repeat with the other slices.
  • Place the brioche slices on your preheated griddle and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown, then flip and repeat on the other side.
  • Remove from the griddle and serve warm with syrup, fruit, powdered sugar, or your favorite topping.

Notes

  • Most store-bought brioche loaves have about 8 slices in them, so a serving is 2 slices per person.
  • Homemade brioche could also be used or this recipe also works with Challah, French bread, white bread, and Texas toast. I find that 1 to 1½-inch thick slices work best 
  • A ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg can also be added to the egg wash.
