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.
- 1 loaf Texas toast
- 10 eggs
- 2 tablespoon milk
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 4 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoon milk
- Heat your pan over medium heat until piping hot. You want the French toast to immediately sizzle when it hits the pan.
- In a medium bowl whisk eggs, milk, and oil in a medium-sized bowl until well combined.
- In a small bowl whisk together all of the maple glaze the ingredients until smooth.
- Dip each piece of texas toast into the egg mixture, coating both sides, and place immediately on to the hot pan.
- Flip the toast over when golden brown and continue to cook until both sides are done.
- Drizzle with maple glaze or cut the french toast into strips for dipping sticks.

This maple glaze is seriously delicious. We saved the leftover glaze and used it with waffles, too!
