Honey Brioche French Toast Recipe

August 16, 2020


Manuka Honey Recipes

Remember when you were a kid and you woke up from the smell of mom or dad cooking up some French toast? That smell saturated the home and was delicious enough to wake up anyone out of a deep sleep to come and get breakfast. As adults, though, it is nice to turn this into a true treat that our “older” senses and appetites can appreciate even more. For me, that would be adding both honey and brioche bread to the traditional recipe.


I can still remember the first time I ever had a brioche bread, it was that incredible. I was on vacation in Miami and somehow through the first 35 years of my life, I had never tried it. I ordered a breakfast sandwich at a local café in South Beach and chose brioche out of curiosity. It was a decision I would never regret.

Brioche is made with both eggs and butter in the dough, giving it a very rich, smooth, and buttery flavor. Think King’s Hawaiian on steroids. It is almost as though it should be considered a pastry but we are lucky enough to get it in the bread section. There simply is no other “bread” like it and it is perfect in breakfast dishes for that very reason.

Ingredients for honey brioche French toast:

  • Loaf of brioche bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4c milk
  • 1/4c honey
  • 1t vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Butter (for skillet)
  • Fresh berries (optional for topping but highly recommended)
  • You can also use raw honey or maple syrup as a topping

To make:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, honey, vanilla, and salt
  2. Continue to mix until honey is completely broken down and no longer “lumpy”
  3. Slice bread into 1” slices
  4. Preheat large skillet or flat top grill on medium-low heat
  5. Once warmed, add some butter and allow to melt (swirl to coat cooking surface)
  6. Add bread slice to egg mixture, ensuring all sides of the bread are fully covered
  7. Remove bread from mixture, allow excess to drip off, then add to skillet
  8. Continue this process until you cannot add any more bread to skillet
  9. Allow to cook for four minutes, then turn
  10. Cook second side for about three to four minutes – color should be a nice golden brown
  11. Repeat steps five through 10 until all bread is cooked
  12. Add to plate, add toppings, and enjoy!
