Recipe: French Toast Two Ways


So I like my French Toast sweet while my husband likes his salty.

So we make them two ways


  • Day old French Bread or Challah Bread works the best
  • 2 Eggs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tbs Milk
  • 1 tbs Oil for pan

Slice the bread thickly

Whip eggs, salt, pepper and milk together.

Dip bread into batter on both sides and place onto hot oiled pan.

Cook until both sides are golden brown and center is cooked.

Serve with ketchup


  • Day old French Bread or Challah Bread works the best (raisin bread is also good)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tbs Orange Juice
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 2-3 Cardomom pods crushed or ground up in a grinder
  • 1 tb Milk (some extra for glazing)
  • Sugar (for glazing)

Slice the bread thickly

Whip eggs, orange juice, vanilla essence, crushed cardomom and milk together.

Dip bread into batter on both sides and place onto hot oiled pan.

Sprinkle some sugar on top before flipping over. Do the same (sprinkle with sugar) on the other side.

Cook until both sides are golden brown and you have a good glaze.


  • Frozen bag of berries, heated on the stove with a bit of water, heat until it becomes a sauce, add powdered sugar when serving.


  • Real Maple Syrup
  • I know, talk about a sugar high! 

There you have it, French Toast Two Ways, salty and sweet.

How do you like your French Toast? Salty or Sweet?

my goodness! I am usually more of a savory brunch eater, so I'm loving the salty version of this. I hope I have the willpower to NOT make this this weekend! Ha, so much for a healthy January...

You're making me drool, as usual. Orange, vanilla, and cardamom sounds like the best combo ever.

I had goat cheese, walnut and caramel stuffed French toast on vacation this past summer. HEAVEN.

My mum used to make so much french toast when I was younger that I got quite sick of it! However, I like mine sweet when I do have them. Your recipe sounds delicious...mmm

It's funny how most people don't think of french toast as being good salty, but we have eggs and toast as salty! It's soooo goooood salty! hahahaa I've been converted!
