The other day I was strolling through the local Super Market when  I came across an amazing loaf of Challah bread.  I knew I had to make something with it.  So I decided to make my favorite French Toast for dinner.  Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner.  Plus, a little brown sugar and Cinnamon to round off my French Toast.  The perfect complement for a savory sweet breakfast for dinner treat.

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast

Top with a little powdered sugar and this breakfast treat is going prime time.

Cinnamon Sugar French Toast

  • 10 slices thick bread – I like challah or other soft breads.
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tbs brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Preheat a skillet or griddle to medium/high heat approximately 350 degrees.

In a bowl combine the milk, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Whisk together until everything is incorporated.  I then pour it into a pie plate so that I have plenty of surface area to dip the bread.

Whisk the egg mixture

Purchase thick sliced bread or slice your own to about 3/4 to 1 inch thick.

Slice the bread

Dip the bread into the egg mixture, flip and then let drain for a couple of seconds.

Dip the bread

Place the bread onto the cooking surface.  Repeat with the remaining bread until you have filled up all available cooking surfaces.  Let the French Toast cook on the first side until the surface is golden brown.  Roughly 1-2 minutes.  Then flip and continue to cook until the other side is browned.  Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of the bread and how hot of a cooking surface you have.

Fry up the French Toast

Remove the cooked French Toast to a plate and keep warm in the oven until you have cooked all of the bread.

  1. French toast is one of our houses favorites but I don't think we've ever made it for dinner before. Looks very good.

    • Chris, Breakfast for dinner is where it is at. It makes standard boring breakfast dishes fun again. Really, it is almost like you are breaking the rules when you serve breakfast for dinner. Add a little bit of excitement to dinner by going back to breakfast.

  2. You better have had this with some thick cut bacon! It's making me so hungry.

    (Nice finally meeting you Rex!)

    • SaraMae – It was a pleasure to meet you too. As always, there was a side of thick cut bacon served with the French Toast.
