Blackstone French Toast Recipe
Whether it is Saturday morning breakfast for the family, or a random Tuesday brinner, you are going to love this homemade French toast!
You can use whatever your favorite bread is for our French toast, but if you want to really make it the BEST version that it could possibly be, I recommend fresh bakery brioche. In this case, we used a Cinnamon Swirl Brioche from Macrena Bakery in Seattle. I’ve never actually been to one of their physical locations, but if you’re ever near one I highly recommend it. We pick up their breads from a local grocery store, and it is incredible.
Most of the time we use regular old grocery store white bread though. Don’t let the lack of the fanciest cinnamon loaf in the country stop you from enjoying French toast!

How to make French Toast on the Blackstone
This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.
Whip it good.
The eggs, cinnamon, sugar, salt, and vanilla, that is. Make sure you beat it with a whisk for 2-3 minutes, vigorously. You don’t want to be able to differentiates between the eggs whites and other ingredients when you lift the whisk out of the egg wash.
Preheat the griddle
Low to medium-low is about right. The French toast should take 2-3 minutes per side to brown if the temperature is right.
Soak and cook
Place a pat of butter down on the griddle surface and spread it around the entire area that will soon be covered with French Toast.
Soak the bread slices on both sides and place onto the griddle.
Flip after 2-3 minutes when the first side is golden brown, put down a little more butter, and cook the other side. Cook another 2-3 minutes until both sides are browned.
Serve hot with warm, real maple syrup and a pat of melty butter on top.

Homemade French Toast FAQ
French Toast keeps so well! You can make a giant batch and freeze it in freezer bags for a quick breakfast anytime. You can also refrigerate this for a few days too if you know you’ll eat it fairly quickly.
We prefer using the toaster. Gets everything nice and warm and slightly crisp on the outside. The microwave also works, as would your air fryer on a lower temperature.
