French toast with warm bourbon vanilla syrup... what can we say? Big fat slices of French toast dipped in an eggy custard and then grilled. Topped with a simple warm bourbon vanilla syrup and powdered sugar this is one breakfast dish you won’t soon forget!
Okay okay okay. FRENCH TOAST.
It’s about time, right? I mean, I have made a crazy amount of breakfast recipes since I started writing and sharing at Sugar Dish Me -- even more since I became a bona fide breakfast fanatic here at Food Fanatic -- and I have only ever published one other French toast recipe.
Clearly I like to booze up my grilled breakfast breads. I think it must have something to do with the sweet custardy insides.
You can definitely leave the bourbon out, but if you’re into in, with the vanilla and the sneaky butter I added to the syrup? Ohhhhhmahgahhh it is dreamy.
And there’s one super tip to making the MOST awesome French toast that I’m going to spell out for you. Carry it with you forever and use it whenever possible.
Are you ready?
You need Texas Toast to make amazing French toast. The big fat slices soak up the eggy custard like no other bread will. You have to grill them a little longer so it cooks through, but oh man is it ever worth it.
And now we need to talk syrup. I mentioned sneaky butter -- that’s because it’s melted right in there - right inside that nice warm syrup. I hate when the butter pools in one little spot on my French toast or pancakes. If you melt the butter INTO the syrup you get awesomely even butter distribution. There are so many breakfast secrets happening here today.
