Hawaiian French Toast

This recipe makes me long for breakfast on Maui!
Course: Beginnings
Servings: 4


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk You can use any kind of milk, even dairy-free
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • pinch salt
  • 8 slices Portuguese Sweet Bread 3/4" slices. You can use brioche or King's Hawaiian
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter I think I use more!


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a large bowl whisk together eggs, milk vanilla, honey and salt. Soak bread slices in egg mixture for 2 minutes each side.
  • Melt 1 Tbsp. of butter in a large skillet and add half of the soaked bread. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until it is just golden brown. Repeat with remaining bread and butter.
  • Place cooked bread on a baking sheet and cook in preheated oven for 5 minutes.
  • Serve hot with whatever toppings you like. I like butter, and a mixture of bananas and chopped macadamia nuts with a drizzle of maple and coconut syrups.
