8 French toast recipes to make any morning better

6 days ago 44

My ability — and willingness — to make a meal out of bread is endless. Whether that means grilled cheese, generously topped tartines or egg-in-a-hole, just to name a few, I never run out of ideas for getting through a loaf. But even the best breads don’t last forever, and once they start to edge toward stale, not every type of dish is ideal. What is great with slightly older bread, though? French toast.

The French of French toast can attest to that. Their version of this dish is known as called “pain perdu,” or “lost bread.” We know it as a favorite breakfast or brunch dish. Especially when taken in a savory direction, it makes a fun, family-friendly dinner, too (though I’d eat a sweet version in the evening, no question).

French toast’s versatility expands even more once you start thinking about all the different kinds of bread you can use, and how you want to top or fill it. Can you make it vegan? Absolutely. I’ve gathered a sampling of a French toast recipes from our archives to help you appreciate this satisfying classic.
