Cooktime

20 min

Custardy, fluffy French toast with a touch of vanilla and cinnamon.

Serves 4

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

Equipment

  • Wide, shallow dish

  • Skillet

  • Spatula for flipping

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.
