Can you Freeze French Toast
However, sometimes it can be a lot of work to get French Toast on the table, especially when you're trying to get everyone ready and out the door to school, work or even church on Sunday mornings.
I also like to make extra freezer French toast to use on busy mornings. All we need to do is pull a few slices from the freezer, reheat in the microwave and breakfast is ready!

Frozen French Toast
French Toast is usually a Saturday breakfast for our family. I always try to make extra so I can freeze the leftovers to use during the week.

- Electric Griddle - you can easily cook this on top of the stove in a frying pan or cast iron pan. I love using my electric skillet though because it's fast and I can get a lot of bread slices on it.
- Aqua Melamine Plates - These are so pretty and perfect to serve breakfast, brunch or even dessert on and make the table look pretty too.
- Pioneer Woman Cloth Napkins - okay, not a kitchen tool, but I love how easy these cloth napkins wash. And they never need ironing. Another huge plus for me!

- Sliced White Bread - I like to use "cheap" sandwich bread. You know the kind of sandwich bread you can get for around $1.00? In my opinion, this makes the best French Toast.
- Milk - I have made this recipe with whole, 2% and even skim milk. I prefer using whole milk.
- Cooking oil spray or butter
- Cinnamon/sugar mixture - you can use a store-bought mixture or make it homemade.
Step 1: Prepare the Egg Mixture
Mix together the eggs and milk. Dip the slices of white bread into the egg mixture.
Step 2: Cook French Toast in Electric Skillet
Place the slices of bread onto a hot electric skillet or stove top griddle that's been coated in melted butter.
Sprinkle the bread with the cinnamon/sugar mixture before flipping to continue cooking on the other side.
Step 3: How to Serve French Toast
- Serve the French toast immediately with a little butter and, of course, syrup.
- We like our syrup warmed in the microwave for a few minutes.
- Another delicious way is to serve the French toast with either Homemade Strawberry Sauce or Homemade Blueberry Sauce.
Step 4 : How to Freeze French Toast
- Lay your leftover French Toast in a single layer on a baking sheet that's been covered in either waxed paper, parchment paper or even aluminum foil.
- Next, place the tray in the freezer.
- Leave the tray in the freezer for about 30 to 40 minutes.
- Remove the FROZEN French Toast slices and place in a freezer safe bag.
Step 5: How to Reheat Frozen French Toast
- The next time you're having a busy morning, just pull a few slices out of the freezer and heat up in the microwave.
- You can also reheat the frozen bread slices in the toaster or on a baking sheet placed in a preheated 350 degree oven.
- Serve as usual with butter and syrup.
Once you prepare freezer French toast this way, you'll see how easy it is to reheat and prepare for breakfast on busy mornings. Even the kids can help themselves to breakfast!
