10 Ways to Decadent French Toast this Weekend

Katy Morris

Rise and dine at your leisure over Labor Day brunch with some premeditated indulgence. For us, that means over-the-top French Toast. Yes, these recipes require a little extra effort but you have the time this weekend.

That’s why we combed some of our favorite blogs to gather the ultimate list of recipes so you can enjoy French Toast at a whole other level. How do you like it? Baked, boozy, or brimming with berries?

We’ve got it all for you, plus lots in-between.

Dairy-free folks and vegans, we have you covered, too.

To see Jonathan Melendez‘s recipe for Pistachio Cherry Cream Stuffed French Toast (shown above) scroll down.

For a sweet seasonal French toast with a British twist, try Smitten Kitchen’s Blueberry Bread and Butter Pudding. It’s simpler than it sounds and could very well be the best thing since (and with) sliced bread.

Think of French toast and you think of egg and milk coated bread ready to be browned, right? Not necessarily. For a vegan alternative, just listen to Jeanine & Jack and opt for almond milk, nutritional yeast, and some Love and Lemons. Get the full recipe here.

We leave it to Melinda Strauss of Kitchen Tested to devise unique methods and flavorful combinations, and when it comes to French toast, she says to forget frying your toast in butter – go for the waffle iron instead. We love this protein packed Peanut Butter & Banana French Toast .

Using cinnamon-swirled challah (although any cinnamon bread will do), Shoshana Ohriner of Couldn’t Be Parve makes an indulgent dairy-free baked Sticky Bun French Toast that is surprisingly effortless but over-the-top delish.

You can’t top this Italian twist on classic French toast. Savory meets summer tomatoes in Marcia Selden’s Panzanella French Toast. We think it’s unexpected with a welcome dose of healthy!

While we totally share Jonathan Melendez’s infatuation with bread, we love that he makes the filling the star of the show in his Pistachio Cherry Cream Stuffed French Toast. The salty-nutty crunch paired with tart cherries in a creamy mixture is simply scrumptious. Check out the recipe below, and be sure to check it out on The Candid Appetite too to get even more tasty ideas and preparation tips.

THANK YOU to all of the bloggers who shared their recipes and photos with us for this blog post.

Here’s to a sweet holiday weekend! Liz
