Easy Savory French Toast

This Easy Savory French Toast is a delicious spin on the traditional French toast. We used fresh herbs and other savory ingredients to flavor our batter. A nicely cooked egg with a runny yolk is the finishing touch to this excellent breakfast, brunch or dinner dish.

  • 8 slices of challah bread or a baguette (better if it’s 1-2 days old)
  • 1 cup milk I used unsweetened almond milk (use whatever milk you like)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder or onion powder (or a combination of both)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons of vegetable oil or whatever oil you prefer
  • Optional toppings: arugula sliced avocado, fried or soft-boiled eggs


  • Heat a large skillet on medium heat with a mild flavored oil (or butter or margarine).
  • In a bowl or a casserole, use a fork to whisk together the eggs, milk, parsley, thyme, garlic powder, salt, and freshly ground pepper.
  • Once the oil is shimmering, start to soak the bread in the egg batter.
  • Start to dip the bread in batches. Let each soak for 10-30 seconds (depends on how thick the slices are and how dry the bread is).
  • As soon as the oil is shimmering and heated, start to transfer the bread to the skillet. Lower the heat to medium-low. Be sure not to crowd the slices of bread. Do not flip until the first side gets nice and golden brown.
  • Cook on each side until it becomes golden brown and crispy (2-3 minutes per side). Transfer the French toasts to a serving platter or dish.
  • Serve the French toast topped with arugula (or spinach), avocado slices, and fried eggs (optional).
