Easy French Toast Recipe – the easiest French toast recipe ever. No overnight prep, just dunk, cook and dust with sugar for a yummy breakfast.

Over the years I’ve tried all kinds of french toast recipes. Ones that required the mixture to sit overnight. Ones that were stuffed with cream cheese and fruit. Even some that were baked. But I always come back to this one.

It’s just so comforting – not too sweet and not too eggy. It’s just plain good. Of course, that could be because it’s pretty much the same recipe my Mama used when I was growing up.

There’s a lot to be said for your Mama’s recipes, you know. One of your Mama’s recipes can instantly transport you back in time which is why I like burnt fried chicken. But that’s another story. 

How to Make Easy French Toast

It couldn’t easier to make my mama’s French toast recipe. You’ll just need some bread (use something substantial, not white, soft sandwich bread), a few eggs, a little Half and Half or cream, vanilla extract. butter, and powdered sugar or syrup

Beating eggs with a fork in a small bowl.

Break four eggs into a shallow bowl. Add half & half or cream and vanilla. Beat together well.

Butter melting in a nonstick skillet.

Heat a skillet large enough to hold two slices of bread (about a 10″ works well) over medium heat. Add 1 tblsp butter to skillet.

Dipping the bread into the egg mixture.

While the butter is melting, place a slice of bread into the egg mixture and allow it to sit for a few seconds soaking up the eggy mixture. Turn the bread over to the second side.

Dipping the bread's second side.

Lift the bread with a spatula and place in the heated skillet. Repeat with a second slice of bread.

Bread cooking in a skillet.

Cook 3-4 minutes until golden brown.

Bread turned to cook the second side.

Turn and cook approximately 2 minutes on the second side. Repeat with remaining two slices of bread and tablespoon of butter.

Transfer to a serving plate. Top with powdered sugar or syrup.

This recipe easily doubles or triples.

  1. While it kind of looks good, you have to remember that I am the person in the family that does not care for French toast. I am more plebeian that you. I prefer a thick slice of good grainy bread, toasted with good cheese. Yes sir, that cheese toast will last me through the entire day. But, that recipe is probably not your aim here.

    Anyway, I still enjoy the pictures.

  2. Now you’ve done it…Now I’m going to have to wake up and make French Toast tomorrow :) Looks amazing!
