Churro French Toast

IMG_9836edit (2)I came across this idea on the interweb and had to make it my own. I mean, churros an french toast… combined?! What more could you possibly want for breakfast? I can’t possibly think of anything. Yummy french toast dipped in a cinnamon/sugar mix and a cream cheese glaze is all I can imagine for my next few breakfast experiences. Warning: this looks more difficult on paper than it is when you actually start to make it. Don’t overthink it!

*Helpful hint: to keep the french toast warm if you’re preparing other breakfast items, preheat the oven to 250F and place the finished slices in the oven on a baking sheet until ready to eat.

You Will Need:

For the cream cheese glaze-

  • 4 tbsp cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the cinnamon sugar-

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon

For the toast-

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 loaf of your favorite thick bread
  • unsalted butter

Directions:

The Glaze-

  1. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat all the glaze ingredients together until smooth. Remove to a zip top bag and set aside.

The Cinnamon Sugar-

  1. In a wide shallow bowl, combine all the cinnamon sugar ingredients.

The Toast-

  1. In a large shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and salt. Soak as many slices in the egg mixture as possible for 5 minutes, turning once.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter and 1 tablespoon of the oil in a very large saute pan or griddle over medium heat. Add the soaked bread and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until well browned.
  3. Remove the French toast from the pan and immediately dip in the cinnamon sugar, turning to coat completely. Remove to a sheet pan and keep it warm in the oven until ready to serve. Fry the remaining soaked bread slices, adding butter and oil as needed, until it’s all cooked.
  4. Remove the warm French toast slices to plates. Snip a small hole in the corner of the zip top bag filled with the cream cheese glaze. Drizzle over the French toast and serve immediately.
