Cheesy French Toast made with Brioche

Are you looking for something to make Christmas morning? Well, have I got a treat for you. Sweet and savory, cheesy french toast. The tastiest french toast my mouth has ever seen. for reals.

As long as you have a loaf of brioche sitting around, it's smooth sailing. Twenty minutes tops. Just in case you dont, I have a totally awesome recipe here

My gift to you.

Have a wonderful and joyous holiday, and a Very Merry Christmas. May all your dreams come true.


Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 15 - 20 minutes

1 loaf brioche bread (recipe here)
4 eggs
2 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 - 1 1/2 cups aged cheddar, shredded
salt and pepper to taste
2 - 3 tbsp butter
maple syrup


1. Preheat a frying pan, griddle, or cast iron pan on medium heat.

2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with milk, cinnamon and salt and pepper to taste until light and frothy. In a separate bowl add the shredded cheese.

3. Slice the brioche into 1/2 to 1 inch slices, depending on your preference.

4. Add 1/2 tbsp of butter at a time to the frying pan.

5. Dip the bread into the egg mixture one at a time, making sure to coat each side. Then dip the bread into the shredded cheese coating each side. Place the bread into the frying pan and fry for 3 minutes on each side, or until the cheese has become brown and crispy. You may cook multiple pieces of toast at a time. If the bread starts to stick to the bottom of the pan, add more butter. Add butter each time you fry a new piece.

6. Serve with a generous amount of maple syrup.
