How to Griddle French Toast
There’s nothing quite like a perfectly crisped piece of French Toast to begin a relaxing Sunday morning. I recently re-discovered my love for French Toast after acquiring a griddle for my new house, and boy did I forget how much I loved it. However, I’m very much a minimalist when it comes to this breakfast delicacy. I don’t need mass amounts of sugary fruits or a half a bottle of syrup. I keep it quick and easy when making my French Toast, and below you’ll learn just how I do that.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
This list is extremely small, yet your French Toast will still be exploding with flavor!
- One loaf of bread (Your choice, but I prefer a medium sliced Brioche).
- Eggs (I typically use 5-6 for an entire loaf of bread).
- A splash of milk or half and half (again your preference, but I’ve found that the half and half produces a tastier French Toast).
- Powdered/Confectionate sugar.
- Cinnamon Sugar.
- Syrup of your choice (My favorite is a small batch blueberry syrup that only needs a half spoonful on each piece of French Toast).
Step 2: Turn on Griddle
The griddle should be on medium-high heat for the perfectly cooked French Toast, but don’t be afraid to heat it up to high for 10-15 minutes before lowering back down to the recommended temp. Be careful to not have the griddle too hot as it will quickly burn the underside of your bread!
Step 3: Preparation
As the griddle is warming to its desired temperature you may begin the prep on the bread.
- You will crack however many eggs you require into some sort of container that easily allows for the dipping of bread (I recommend something square/rectangular rather than circular).
- Next, add your splash of milk or half and half and whisk the concoction until most of the egg yolks have broke and are mixed evenly throughout.
- Sprinkle in some cinnamon sugar and whisk some more.
Step 4: Griddlin’
- By now your griddle should be at its ideal temp, so open your bread and begin dipping it into the milk/egg concoction.
- After each piece has been dipped on both sides, gently place it on the griddle and listen to that sizzle that will make your stomach rumble!
- By the time you have all of your bread on the griddle, it will probably be time to start flipping. So rotate back to your first piece and start to flip over your perfectly bronzed bread.
- Let the other side cook for 1-2 minutes (maybe more if you’re more on the medium side rather than the high side of heat) before flipping one final time.
- This last step is crucial, yet also all based on personal preference. In my opinion, the perfect French Toast is almost burnt on one side and perfectly golden on the other. So I typically let the toast sit another minute or two before taking it off.
Step 5: Final Touches
Once the French Toast has been crisped to absolute perfection, you will add the final touch of a minimal amount of powdered sugar that is topped off with your syrup of choice (I’m telling you, gotta try that blueberry one from above). ANd from here, plate your delectable French Toast and enjoy!
