  • 10-12 slices brioche (I used a pre-sliced loaf, but you can slice your own)
  • cups milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • bananas for topping
  • whipped cream for topping
  • powdered sugar for topping

Caramel Syrup:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup corn syrup


French Toast:

  • Preheat skillet or griddle to 375 degrees.
  • Whisk milk, eggs, vanilla extract, sugar, nutmeg, and salt together in a shallow dish.
  • Melt butter evenly across griddle. Working in batches, dip each slice of brioche bread in the egg mixture and cook in the hot butter until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side, adding more butter as needed. Top with bananas, whipped cream, powdered sugar, and caramel syrup

Caramel Syrup:

  • In a medium saucepan, combine all syrup ingredients over medium heat. Whisk together until smooth and sugar has completely dissolved. Serve warm over french toast.
