Cinnamon Bread Frech Toast

Today is definitely one of those days that calls for comfy clothes, Christmas movies, and a big Saturday breakfast!  The rain hasn't let up all day and it's forced us to RELAX!  I bought a loaf of Trader Joe's Cinnamon Bread with plans to make nice, thick french toast for the kids.
After I made myself a nice hot Americano, I sat down to a lovely Saturday breakfast with my happy family.  These days are what vacation is all about!

Here's my little kitchen helper putting the finishing touches on his french toast

Cinnamon Bread French Toast {serves 5-6}


  • 1 loaf Trader Joe's Thick Cut Cinnamon Bread {Or any other thick-cut cinnamon bread}
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1-2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • butter for frying
  • syrup and powdered sugar for topping
Heat large skillet to medium-high heat.  In a shallow pie plate or bowl, mix together beaten egg, milk, and vanilla extract.  Butter the skillet liberally.  Dip one piece of bread at a time into the egg mixture and gently shake off any excess mixture.  Place on hot skillet and fry 3-4 minutes on one side, or until golden brown, then flip and fry 2-3 minutes more.  Repeat with remaining bread.  Be sure to add butter to skillet before you add remaining bread.
**To keep french toast warm while making the rest, place on cookie sheet and put in a 200 degree oven.  
Top your french toast with syrup and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Only 4 ingredients!

I LOVE my big skillet!


  1. Yum, yum, yum, Julie! Just made the french toast, and I have your tri-tip taquito recipe going in the crockpot. Love your posts! Keep them coming! :) Do you have any good salmon recipes? I'm struggling with cooking salmon for some reason. Hope you and the family have a great Christmas! xoxo, Melissa

  2. Hi Melissa! So glad you've been enjoying the recipes :)
    Let me know how you like the taquitos. They are so easy, but so good!
    I LOVE Salmon, but mostly grill it with seasonings & lemon slices. Have you tried that Soy Teriyaki Sauce? I can't remember what it's called, but you can find it at any grocery store. I will try to remember other ways I've cooked it before and I'll let you know.
    Merry Christmas to you!!!
