Mark’s Rise-and-Shine Sourdough French Toast

Pinit

One of my favorite things in the world is breakfast, especially when my dad makes his signature french toast!

What makes his french toast recipe so amazing is the bread. Every year around Thanksgiving and Christmas, my amazing Aunt Amy makes dozens and dozens of loaves of mouth-watering sourdough bread. We eat some of it immediately for the holidays, but we also freeze several loaves to use throughout the year. The bread is great by itself, with butter and jam, or to make a sandwich with. But our family’s favorite thing to make with it is french toast!

Since you probably don’t have an amazing Aunt Amy like I do, then your only hope of having amazing french toast is to find some delicious sourdough at your local baker or grocery. It helps to make it when the bread is a couple of days old – it holds together better this way.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 loaf sourdough bread
  • 8 eggs, scrambled
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • 3-4 Tablespoons butter
  • Real maple syrup

Recipe Directions:

Slice your loaf of sourdough into about 3/4 inch thick slices (10-12 slices for a loaf). In a large, shallow dish (we use a 9×13 casserole dish), pour the scrambled eggs, vanilla, milk, and cinnamon and mix together. We really like cinnamon, so we probably used at least 2 teaspoons.

Place slices of sourdough into the egg mixture and let it sit for about 1 minute to soak in the egg mixture. Then flip the bread over and let it soak for another minute.

Heat a large skillet or griddle over low-medium heat. Melt 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of butter and swirl it around, covering the bottom of the skillet. Add sourdough slices, 3-4 pieces at a time (whatever you can fit). Cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side until both sides are golden brown.

Serve with maple syrup and bacon or sausage. Also, a hot cup of coffee makes a nice addition!
