Easy Savory French Toast Recipe

I’ve got a fun new recipe for you guys today: Savory French Toast!

If you’re a fan of regular french toast but want to mix it up, then give this a try! It’s basically regular french toast just minus the sugar and cinnamon, plus some herbs and seasoning, and with savory toppings.

This is a great brunch recipe to serve to a crowd, especially if you have a griddle that can handle a bunch of slices of bread at once. 

I highly recommend serving it with a fried egg, or for a crowd you could do a big batch of soft boiled eggs for less hands-on time for the cook. :)

Another idea is to use this savory french toast as the base for a more fancy/flavorful avocado toast! For topping ideas, see my Avocado Toast Recipes blog post. :)

savory french toast ingredients

Whisk your milk, eggs, parsley, thyme, granulated garlic, salt, and pepper together in a shallow dish. 

Working in batches, dip bread slices in egg mixture and let soak for about 30 seconds per side.

Transfer the soaked bread to a nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat (with a little butter or oil to grease it) and cook for about 2 minutes per side, until the french toast is browned and the center of the bread springs back when pressed.
