Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper. Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

Make the custard. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk egg yolks, milk and vanilla extract together. Once combined, whisk in the salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Step 3

Dunk the sourdough bread into the custard until saturated on each side.

Step 4

Heat a nonstick pan on medium heat and add two tablespoons of butter. Once the butter is melted, cook bread for 1 minute on each side.

Step 5

Once all the french toast is on the sheet tray, bake for 10 minutes at 400°F.

Step 6

Serve immediately with powdered sugar or maple syrup. Enjoy!


Notes:

For a richer french toast, heavy cream or half and half can be substituted for milk.

I'd never tried using sourdough for French toast and I didn't expect it to be so good!
