French Toast

This is quite literally the best French toast I have ever made. It is rich, decadent, custardy, and the only French toast recipe I will ever return to.  There’s nothing quite as sweet as starting a Sunday splitting French toast with your toddler.  Life is good.


  • 10 slices of bread
  • 4 large eggs, whisked vigorously
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 4 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt


  1. Mix together the ingredients.
  2. Let the bread really soak up the wet ingredients.
  3. Cook on griddle for 3+ minutes per side.
