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. With a simple, yet indulgent, flavor and texture this take on the traditional is oh-so-satisfying! 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 helps 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.

If you’ve been here for a bit, you know we are solutions-focused 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 individually dipping and frying each slice of French toast, we bake all the slices 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 multitask while the French toast is baking in the oven!

How to make our sheet pan French toast

  1. Slice your challah bread. We like to do 3/4 inch slices!
  2. Mix your egg wash:
    1. In a small bowl or large measuring cup, add 4 whole eggs, milk, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla.
    2. Whisk it all together.
  3. Pour the egg wash into the bottom of a 13×9 non-stick baking sheet.
  4. Place each slice onto the egg wash. Allow it to sit for a couple of minutes to absorb the liquid, then flip each slice.
  5. Sprinkle brown sugar on top of the French toast slices.
  6. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 11-12 minutes.
  7. Serve warm with maple syrup, fruit, and whipped cream!

Unsurprisingly, this scrumptious breakfast recipe is as easy to store as it is to make! All you need to do is layer the French toast slices into an airtight container and pop them in the fridge. We recommend heating them back up in the oven or in the microwave!
