Sourdough Baguette French Toast

Any bread will work for this recipe, but there’s something special about using a sourdough baguette. It’s crusty, hearty and toothsome, and the sourdough adds a wonderful dimension of flavor.


  • French baguette, sliced
  • 6 large eggs
  • ½ cup milk (anything but skim)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  1. Mix all ingredients except the bread in a large bowl.
  2. Add the pieces of bread and let it sit, stirring occasionally, until all the batter is soaked up.
  3. Melt butter over medium high heat and cook until golden brown.
