This French toast is a restaurant style French toast made with eggs, milk, bourbon, and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.
I will always order this dish for the center of the table at any brunch I go to. If you are feeling like you want to make a nice brunch spread for your family or friends, you will never go wrong with this French toast.
A good French toast is all about the quality of the bread, you cannot go wrong with a nice brioche or challah loaf. Do not use regular sliced bread! You want thick bread slices for this recipe so the bread can soak in the vanilla/egg mixture.
This is a great breakfast to make on a lazy weekend morning. It is a must to drizzle with warm maple syrup. It will always be a crowd pleaser and can be garnished with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or blackberries. Feel free to pair this with a few slices of bacon as well!
Instructions for French Toast
Add the eggs, milk, bourbon, vanilla and nutmeg in a 9x13 baking pan and whisk together. Add the bread slices in a single row in the baking pan for 15 minutes. Turn to coat and slip to the other side for another 15 minutes.
In a bowl, add the sugar and cinnamon and combine.
Heat up a large pan over medium heat. Add about 1 tablespoon butter and wait for it to melt. Cook the toast until light golden, about 2 minutes, then flip to the other side for about 4-5 minutes. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top of each piece of toast. Flip and sprinkle some more sugar on the other side, until the sugar caramelizes.
Serve with berries and top with maple syrup. Enjoy!
