French toast is such a simple recipe. Eggs, milk, bread. It’s an easy and impressive breakfast to whip up. It’s just that…it’s so….basic. Time to change it up! Time to be innovative, creative, and game changing in, well…the french toast game. Time to get pumped up about french toast. Why? Because you haven’t even begun to grasp the amazingness of the stacks of soggy-egged-bready goodness like these recipes have to offer!

1. Pecan Pie French Toast

YES! Pie for breakfast! Legit breakfast! Not the kind where you sneak bites of leftover pie and then call it breakfast. Loopholes of life, my friends.

2. Monte Cristo Ham Cheese French Toast Sandwich

This is a sandwich that certainly lives up to it’s mouthful of a name! French toast as your sandwich bun? Hecks yes!

3. Hot Chocolate French Toast

It’s french toast, that’s soaked in hot chocolate, and stuffed with ganache.  Yes, it’s still a breakfast food. I give you permission.

4. French Toast Rollups

Consider this a hybrid between cinnamon rolls and french toast, where the techniques and ingredients merge into one, to create an easy dip-able version of the breakfast classic!

5. Cake Batter French Toast

The moment I spot rainbow sprinkles on any food, I immediately feel my inner child squealing. Plus, who doesn’t remember stealing Mom’s cake battered spatula and giving it a lick? We all know and love that flavor, but this way you can enjoy it without the warnings of food poisoning from eating raw batter.

6. French Toast Bake

Making a french toast breakfast for a crowd? This is the perfect way to host breakfast with ease. No standing at the stove and flipping necessary.

7. Red Velvet French Toast

One classy way to serve up french toast. With it’s red velvet infusion, that also comes with a heavy dose of cream cheese, in the form of a vanilla bean cheesecake filling. Goodness me.

8. Cannoli Stuffed French Toast

In my family, cannoli eating is basically a favorite past time. No, we aren’t Italian. We are just a group of custard, chocolate and pastry loving folk. So this recipe is one that should definitely be found at a family brunch, in my books.

9. Savory French Toast Casserole

If lasagna and french toast had a baby.

10. French Toast Egg-in-a-hole

When I was a child, I believed full-heartedly that my mother invented “egg in a hole” and I told my friends as such. Eventually I figured out that this was actually a common breakfast. Now if I could serve the french toast version to my own kids, and somehow convince them that I invented it…
