Are you looking for a way to make your family breakfast special? Whether your planning for Easter morning, Christmas brunch, or simply prepping for a family gathering… this maple glaze is sure to make your French toast a family-favorite. Get the full recipe below!
I admit, I am a bit of French toast snob. Here are a couple of cooking tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years:
- Use Texas toast! The extra thick slices are AWESOME.
- Go light on the milk. We only add about 2T for every ten eggs. Too much milk will make your French toast mushy.
- Make sure your pan is piping hot before you get started. You want the French toast to immediately sizzle when it hits the pan.
- Add a bit of oil to your egg and milk mixture. This along with the high heat and egg ratio mentioned above equals beautifully browned French toast.
If you’ve got kiddos in the house and you’re willing to be a bit informal, they’ll love dipping sticks. Just grab a pizza cutter and slice the cooked French toast into thirds.
Then, of course, give them a side dish of maple glaze for dipping. Nom. Nom. Nom.
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons milk
- In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients until smooth.
- Drizzle or dunk the French Toast strips into the glaze.
This maple glaze is seriously delicious. We saved the leftover glaze and used it with waffles, too!
