Easy Freezer Friendly French Toast

Love French toast but don’t want to be tied to a skillet or your griddle? Try this delicious and easy oven baked version. Easy, freezer friendly oven baked French toast.

French toast is one of my favorite breakfast items, surpassed only by buttermilk biscuits and southern sausage gravy. But it’s not something I make on a regular basis  Until a couple of years ago I didn’t own an griddle of any sort and it took forever and a day to make enough to feed my crew.

One night I got to craving French toast but didn’t want to stand there flipping bread for 30 minutes. Lo and behold Jessica from Good Cheap Eats has an oven baked version.

I adapted it using some homemade Brioche and changed up a couple of other items. We loved the recipe and I still make it even now that I own an electric griddle.

My favorite way to eat it is with butter and a dusting of powdered sugar and a side of bacon and fresh fruit

  • 12-16 thick slices of bread. I used Brioche but Texas Toast or regular French bread would work as well
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Grease 2 large baking sheets or line with silicone mats.
  3. In a shallow dish beat eggs well then add milk, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Dip bread slices in egg mixture and place on prepared baking sheets.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes or until golden brown on bottom.
  6. Flip and cook another 3-4 minutes or until golden on the bottom.
  7. Serve hot with butter and syrup or powdered sugar.

To freeze:

  1. Cool completely on wire racks
  2. Place single layers on baking sheets and freeze until solid. This will take about two hours
  3. Place in labeled freezer bags or containers
  4. When ready to serve bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes or until hot
