What Makes Brioche Different than Most Bread?

No one can deny that brioche bread is a treat. It is light, eggy, and slightly sweet flavor and texture are perfect for

  • toast
  • jam
  • bread pudding
  • and of course French toast!

I am speaking purely from experience as I have tried this decadent baked good in all the above examples.

Hey, someone has to do it, right?

How to Make the Best Brioche French Toast

Slice bread into 2-inch slices and set aside. Try not to sneak a bite or two. It will be hard, but I know you can do it! 

In a bowl, whisk together the rest of ingredients and pour into a shallow dish- like a pie dish.

Heat frying pan over medium-high heat with vegetable oil.

Working in small batches, dip one side of sliced bread into the egg mixture so that it is wet, but not soaked.

Flip and dip the other side. A fork & your finger works really well with this step.

Place dipped bread into the hot pan and cook until golden brown. Do not crowd the pan as you may only fit 2 pieces at a time. 

Serve with butter, berries, syrup, or confectioner sugar.

Where can You find Brioche Bread?

So, how did I discover brioche French toast? A Whole Foods Market opened in our area and you can bet your bottom dollar I was there for the opening day with bells on.

I tried to overlook the mayhem of shoppers in every single aisle – you would think they never shopped in a grocery store before- and went to the bakery to check out the goods.

Sliced Brioche Bread

Of course, everything looked beautiful, which made me want ALL THE BREAD THINGS but to keep myself from entering into a gluten coma, I carefully picked up a 2-for-1-deal of, you guessed it- brioche bread.

  • I found this deal in the bakery section of the store. 
  • If your store has a bakery where they make specialty loaves of bread, this is where to go. 
  • You can also stop at your local bakery as I am sure they will have it there as well. 
  • I also found an online resource that you can order and have delivered right to your door! Give Bakerly a try- their Brioche Bread and crepes are delicious! 

One loaf disappeared pretty quickly but the other sat around for another week until I realized it was still in the breadbasket. I did not want it to go to waste,  so I decided to make French toast.

It was so delicious; I don’t think I’ll ever go back to regular bread again.

Topped with melted butter, fresh berries, and a little dusting of confectioner sugar and that’s all she wrote. So darn good.

Can You Toast Brioche Bread?

The simple answer is YES! Brioche bread toasts with a lovely crisp crumb and a soft, chewy center. 

If you slice and toast, be sure to set your toaster to a lighter setting so you do not burn the bread. 

What is Brioche Bread Used For?

Brioche bread has many uses for enjoying this delicate eggy bread.

Make sure to look for the signature shiny crust to know you've found this pillowy goodness. 

  • Enjoy as a fancy dinner roll for holiday dinners or entertaining guests. 
  • When ordering your favorite burger, you may notice that it is served on a brioche bun instead of a hard roll. 
  • Use in your favorite bread pudding recipe. The flavor will be divine when baked and served!
  • Of course, this makes the best french toast too!
