a new breakfast favorite…



I'm not sure why…but after a lifetime of being lukewarm about french toast, I'm finding myself loving it a lot lately. Whether it's the doughnut kind, the s'mores kind, or topped with caramelized bananas & hazelnut cream {like this one from Square One}, the morning breaded sweet has definitely become a new staple… โ€” Joy

  1. I mean whoa!
    Holy moly…i looooove french toast and this looks insanely delicious! I am always amazed by all of the outrageously delicious looking foods + snacks you feature…yummmm!
    p.s. i loved y’all on Secrets of a Stylist…i dvr’d it and watched it the other day! You’re too cute & that wallpaper looks gorgeous!

  2. I am obsessed with french toast. Obsessed, like, it is a sickness. I could eat it everyday. Luckily, I don’t have the time to ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I was always not-so-excited about french toast too, and then I had some here in Detroit that is oven baked and streusel topped and I fell head over heels!
    And that one up there looks awesome, too!

  4. Mmm looks tasty. I actually had french toast on my mind last week but didn’t make it. This is making me have the craving again! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. the BEST french toast in LA (and quite possibly, the universe) is at amandine patisserie in west LA. get it with strawberries and their fresh whipped cream. it is, in my opinion, leagues better than the french toast at square one or some of the other popular brunch places.

  6. Square One Dining is my faaaaave in LA! I love that the cold & hot toppings for their french toast change every so often. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good choice!!

  7. Oh so yum. I have been trying to make various types of French Toast, stuffed and the regular kind and I have not found perfection yet. They taste good but they are not heavenly morsels of warm goodness.. that’s what your picture looks like.. heavenly.

  8. I must, must, must try french toast. It’s not particularly heard of in England but what a fab alternative to my usual weekend pastry! Thank you

  9. love love love french toast! Your pic just transported me back to the morning where our friends made the best french toast for us. Thank you!

  10. My favorite breakfast join in Chicago, The Bongo Room, has brown sugar french toast with banana & praline cookies on top. It’s heaven!

  11. The simplest yet most delish form of French toast that I’ve ever had was two slices of Texas toast slathered generously with a cream cheese/sugar/vanilla mix sandwiched inside, egg dipped and pan-fried per usual.
    I don’t fancy myself a chef (or even a run-of-the-mill cook), but I saw this recipe en la Food Network and….mmmmm….
