Homemade French Toast Recipe
If you have your Flattop griddle out for breakfast be sure you make some French toast too. It’s super simple to make and is goes pretty easy due to the space on the flattop. We took an entire loaf of Texas toast and made Flattop griddle French toast and froze the extra for easy meals in the morning. Especially during the week.
Can I Make This Recipe without a Flattop Griddle?
Definitely, you can make this recipe on your stove with a flat pan. If you have a flattop on your stove, you can make it there too.
Do I Need to Make an Entire Loaf for This Recipe?
No, you can reduce this recipe by half or quarter it, to make it work for your needs.
What Kind of Griddle Is Used For This Recipe?
We use a Char Grill Flat Top Griddle. You can also use your favorite griddle, a Blackstone griddle is also very popular as well. If you don’t want to cook outside, you can also use an electric griddle, those are great to use as well for bacon.
Can You Substitute Half and Half for Other Milk?
You can certainly adjust this to your taste. If you don’t use half and half, heavy cream, whole milk or 2%. It would not be as creamy. If you use milk alternatives, you can use those instead as well.
How Long Do You Cook the French Toast?
Cooking French toast is based on personal preference. If you like it nice and brown, it will cook longer. You want the egg mixture to be cooked and not runny. If you notice it is browning faster than it is cooking on the inside, you may want to turn your heat down and allow it to cook slower. Cook longer on the first side, so you can get it warmed and cooked on the inside more.
