How to compose the perfect french toast

We are a big fan of fancy french toast recipes. From Cannoli Baked French Toast to our Raspberry Cheesecake French Toast, we love a solid crossover recipe. After all, what is better than having your favorite dessert for breakfast?

Our sheet pan french toast takes us back to the basics. A simple, yet indulgent, flavor and texture that is oh-so-yummy! Here are the fundamentals of a great french toast:

  • The bread. We have a soft spot in our hearts for challah french toast. Challah bread is naturally sweet and fluffy. The texture soaks in the egg wash so well! If you can let it go a little bit stale, you will really have the most perfect french toast!
  • The egg wash. The combo of eggs and milk help to add moisture to the challah bread, while also creating a gentle crust on the outside. That is how you get the signature texture of french toast!
  • Adding flavor. As we mentioned, this is a back-to-the-basics french toast recipe.

Why we love sheet pan french toast

If you have ever made a batch of french toast, then you know that it is a time consuming process. Making french toast is also fairly hands on! First you have to individually dip each slice in the egg wash. Then you pan fry the slice on both sides. By the time you’ve made all of the french toast, half of your batch is probably cold.

Well, you know we are solutions focused here at Food Dolls! We love creating efficient recipes that save you time and energy, without sacrificing any flavor. This sheet pan french toast checks off all our boxes – it is simple, low-mess and flavorful!

Instead of spending all the time to individually dip and fry each slice of french toast, we bake ever slice together straight into the egg wash. This makes for the easiest french toast that still delivers on flavor. And the best part is that you can multi-task while the french toast is baking in the oven!
