Foodie Friday: S’mores French Toast!

For Memorial Day, my friends and I decided to have a brunchtacular! The day before I had a brainstorm and decided that s’mores french toast would be an awesome idea… and I was so right.

  • Challah bread
  • Chocolate (any kind you like)
  • Marshmallows
  • Graham crackers
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Butter

First things first, you need to cut your challah in thick slices. I cut mine about 2 inches thick (maybe a little more). We also had a giant challah and I had to cut the slices in half, you can play it by ear, of course. Once your challah is sliced, make an incision but don’t do all the way through, just far enough that you can stuff it.

You’ll probably have to cut up your marshmallows so they’re easier to use, unless you happen to use mini ones (brainstorm!), and also break up your chocolate. We used Hershey milk chocolate so I used 2-3 pieces per slice and about half a normal sized marshmallow.

Once all stuffed, you should crush up your graham crackers, put in a bowl and set aside. Now combine your eggs and milk, whisk together and get ready to dip! So first dip your bread into the wet mixture, get both sides, then dredge in the graham crackers. I coated all my toast before I began cooking it.

To cook, melt some butter in a pan (keep more on hand because you’ll need to keep adding to the pan), make sure you the butter isn’t too hot or it’ll burn your toast very quickly, and just cook toast for about two minutes on each side or until they’re golden and the chocolate and marshmallows are melted. Also, make sure to press the toast down while cooking so that the inside melts properly.

It took a pretty long time to cook all of them because we had lots of big toast and a little pan, so once they were all done we just stuck them in the oven at about 325 just to keep them warm and melty.

If you like s’mores… this is all you’ll need for breakfast ever! So good!
