French Toast Recipe: DF Version Included

Summer is full of time with the kiddos being out of school.  Gotta have something for them to eat for breakfast as it seems they insist on eating every single day *gasp*.

Good food doesn’t have to be difficult or extremely unhealthy and this French Toast Recipe is a big crowd pleaser, especially as the Chief doesn’t have to spend much time or effort to get it on the table!  It takes less than 15 minutes total, and that’s including the half asleep stumbling to remember to grab the other ingredients!

This is also a fantastic way to use stale bread! Cooking it this way gives it new life! Stale bread is also great for making croutons! We love those too!

French Toast Recipe: DF Version IncludedIngredients:

3 lg eggs

3/4 c milk (we used silk in place of normal milk)

1 tbsp sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp salt

8 slices sandwich bread (could use french bread, sliced about 1 inch thick)


  1.  Beat eggs, milk, sugar, salt and vanilla with wire whisk until well mixed then pour into a shallow bowl.
  2. Heat skillet over medium heat. Spray with vegetable oil  or cooking spray before heating)
  3. Dip bread into egg mixture and let soak a minute.  Cook 4 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Topping Suggestions:

syrup- We absolutely love maple syrup around here but you can also try out other types. I’m in an odd type of mood and am thinking skip the normal and try out homemade chocolate syrup but I haven’t tried them together yet!


Fruits: blueberries, strawberries, bananas

Powdered Sugar

Thanks to our awesome reader who commented below her toppings! Sue E, you truly rock!  I don’t think I yet have the stomach to hype my grandkids up on ice cream for breakfast, but then maybe I will when they get a little older! haha

    I’ve never put sugar in my french toast before but I do put cinnamon in it. It adds a warm flavor that is sooo good!

    This is exactly how I make french toast. I even use Silk milk too. My whole family loves it. 🙂

    I was just looking for a recipe that uses a lot of eggs, this is perfect, as I have the bread, too! Yippee!

    Mmmm……that french toast looks amazing. I have never tried to make it dairy free. I love topping my french toast with butter and maple syrup. Yum!!!

    I make my French Toast like this. Sometimes, I add cinnamon instead of salt 🧂 Then I top it off with whatever the grandkids want: powdered sugar, syrup, whipped cream or ice cream 🍨
    Great minds think alike 😍
