French Toast: How To Make It and How To Freeze It
It easy to learn how to make French toast, how to freeze it and how to
reheat it. But it's a bit time consuming to make on busy mornings.
Freeze French toast ahead, however, and you’ve got a healthy homemade
breakfast that you can grab, reheat and eat in less than 5 minutes.
French Toast Recipe
- 12 slices bread
- 8 eggs
- ¼ cup milk
- (opt) 1 tsp vanilla
- Cooking oil spray or butter
Preheat a frying pan or electric griddle. I use med-high heat on the stove or 350 on the griddle.
Break the eggs into a shallow bowl or dish. A smaller casserole dish works if you don’t have shallow bowls. Add the milk and vanilla to the eggs and beat together.
Grease the pan or griddle with the cooking spray or butter, then dip a slice of bread into the egg mixture and flip it to coat the other side. Place the battered bread on the griddle and cook until it’s lightly golden brown then flip and cook the other side. Repeat until you use all the bread.
On a large griddle I can fit 4 pieces at once but a large frying pan may only fit two or three.
What Variations Can I Try?
- Change up the type of bread you use, the thickness of the bread or the type of syrup.
- One of my favorites for a slightly more formal meal is Coconut French Toast
- French Toast Sticks are perfect for a breakfast side dish and are fun for kids
How to Freeze French Toast
Tip:Let your French toast cool on a bakers rack instead of stacking if you plan to freeze them. They will stay crispier and cool faster.
Place the French toast in a single layer on a cookie sheet and put them in the freezer until partly frozen about 1-2 hours. After frozen solid put the frozen French toast into a freezer bag.
You can also wrap each piece of toast in a sheet of plastic food wrap and place the wrapped toast in a freezer bag or tin foil.
Either way be sure to label, date and add it to your freezer inventory sheet.
