French Toast Ingredients

Cream Cheese Glaze Ingredients


  • French Toast Steps

  • 1

    Combine eggs, half & half, sugar, vanilla, cocoa powder, red food coloring, salt, and cinnamon in a shallow baking dish. Whisk until fully combined.

  • 2

    Dip a slice of bread into the red velvet mixture, coating both sides of the bread thoroughly. Transfer bread to a plate and repeat with remaining bread slices. It is ok if there are a few small lumps of cocoa powder in your red velvet mixture.

    Tip: Dip the bread briefly into the red velvet egg mixture; if the bread becomes too saturated, it will take longer to cook and could potentially be soggy.

  • 3

    Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt one tablespoon of butter in the skillet, and once the butter starts to sizzle, lay one slice of dipped bread directly into the butter. Cook for 3-4 minutes until slightly crispy on the bottom side of the bread, then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Transfer bread to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm.

  • 4

    Repeat with remaining dipped bread slices, adding about ½ tablespoon of butter to the skillet before cooking each slice.

  • 5

    To serve, drizzle cream cheese glaze over the tops of the toast, followed by maple syrup (if desired).

  • 6

    Serve with your favorite breakfast fruits and enjoy!

  • Cream Cheese Glaze Steps

  • 1

    In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the whipped cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla together until smooth and creamy.

    Tip: For a thinner glaze, add more milk, one tablespoon at a time, until it reaches your desired consistency.
