French toast, eggs, and bacon is a classic breakfast combination. Who doesn’t love the combination of savory and sweet first thing in the morning for breakfast or brunch? French toast is always a favorite in our household. This is one of the recipes I make knowing my four year old will eat every single drop. But the real french toast lover in the house is my husband. Kris is borderline obsessed with french toast. I’m not even joking. If he could eat french toast everday I’m sure he would. Learning how to make delicious french toast goes without saying in this marriage. My buttermilk french toast has been such a hit with my loved ones I decided it was time to share it with all of you. (It was only right to share this on tasty Tuesday so we can all drool about eating it this weekend.)
Buttermilk french toast is different from regular french toast because buttermilk brings a creaminess and flavor to regular dishes that simply can’t be achieved with regular milk. It makes the spices in the french toast more bold. I’m all about bold for my dishes. Buttermilk works particularly well for recipes like this one which require thick slices of Texas Toast bread. Nobody likes dry french toast and the buttermilk helps keep the toast thick while soaked in the mixture. (I highly recommend using a thick sliced bread for the best results for this recipe.)
You can add an assortment of delicious fruits to the french toast batter or use as a topping. The french toast is already sweet, but if you enjoy extra sweet, sprinkle some powdered sugar on top of your finished toast. Whether you decide to add to this recipe or make it as is, the dish will be delicious!

Buttermilk French Toast
- 8-10 slices Texas Toast
- 3 Large Eggs
- 1/2 cup Buttermilk
- 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Sugar
- 2 Tbsp Butter melted
- 1.5 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 cup Milk
In a medium sized bowl crack your eggs and your buttermilk, nutmeg, salt, cinnamon, brown sugar, sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, and milk to the bowl. Whisk well and set to the side.
Heat your griddle to 325 degrees or your pan to medium high heat. (Let your griddle or pan get hot before using it)
Dip one side of a slice of Texas Toast in your egg mixture completely coating it and do the same for the other side. Place on the hot griddle or hot pan immediately.
Let your slice cook on each side for about 3-5 minutes or until each side is golden brown. (Be careful not to burn!)
Repeat these steps for the rest of your Texas Toast slices then enjoy!
