About this recipe

Few smells are as delectable as golden brown, eggy French toast hot off the griddle and covered in pure maple syrup, powdered sugar, blueberries, raspberries or other fresh fruit. So make this recipe and fill your kitchen with that sweet aroma.

The prep time on this breakfast favorite is quick; all you have to do is whisk together JUST Egg, non-dairy milk (almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, oat milk) and dip some bread in it. This French toast is best when made with French bread or brioche, but honestly, you can use whatever bread you have on hand: sandwich bread, ciabatta, whole-grain whole-wheat bread, challah, sourdough – even gluten-free bread.

JUST Egg makes it easy to make healthier, vegan breakfast and brunch dishes like this French toast, or other brunch classics like eggs benedict or frittatas. It has no cholesterol or saturated fat, with 5g of plant-based protein per serving. So, if you’re trying to eat more plant-based meals, or if you’re a vegan or vegetarian, start your day with the absolute best French toast or any of our free recipes. They’re delicious and easy to follow, and because JUST Egg is so versatile, you’ll never have to have ground flaxseed or other fussy ingredients on hand to make them.

Serves 4

  • 8 slices sturdy bread, like a French loaf or brioche (day old / stale works best)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup JUST Egg
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk (almond creamer is our go-to here)
  • Coconut oil or vegan butter
  • Your favorite toppings (maple syrup, berries, powdered sugar...)

01 / 04

Dry the bread


If your bread isn’t stale, lay it out on a baking sheet overnight to dry or bake it for 10 to 20 minutes in a 300°F oven until stiff and dry. Using stale or dried bread will help soak up the custard while avoiding soggy French toast.

02 / 04

Whisk the custard


Whisk together the JUST Egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and milk in a wide shallow dish.

03 / 04

Soak the bread


Soak the bread slices in the custard mixture for 15 to 30 minutes, flipping halfway through.

04 / 04

Fry the toast


Bring a nonstick skillet to medium-low heat and brush with a light coating of coconut oil or butter. Use a fork or tongs to pick up each slice of bread from the soaking dish, letting any excess custard mixture drip off back into the dish. Cook each slice for about 2 minutes on each side until browned. Serve immediately, with your favorite toppings.
