As winter starts to creep in, cozy breakfasts make their way to the top of the menu. Hearty egg-based casseroles filled with sausage, bacon, and bright peppers. Crispy waffles topped with flavored butters and maple syrup. But my favorite way to start off a chilly winter morning is with two thick slices of homemade French toast.
Brioche is the perfect base for any French toast. This French-style bread is positively luxurious and soaks up the sweet, almost custard-like liquid perfectly. After soaking in a mixture of eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, and cream, the brioche crisps on the griddle, the edges turning a deep golden brown to create a delicate crust. With just a sprinkling of salt and a dusting of powdered sugar, this French toast is completely heartwarming. A drizzle of maple syrup finishes off this rich breakfast, creating a classic meal ideal for any snow day.
