Homemade French toast is delicious and always a welcomed treat to the breakfast table, but you can have it on your plates even faster with this freezer method. Making homemade frozen French toast is easy and cheap. Perfect for meal prepping and budgeting.
We love French toast around here and it's not hard to see why- it's delicious! While fresh French toast is incredible, frozen French toast is pretty good too. And it's perfect for busy mornings!
Why This Recipe Works
- Freezing now means time saved later. Meal prepping your French toast means you can spend less time putting breakfast on the table and more time making sure you have everything before walking out that door in the morning.
- It doesn't take too long to do. This recipe takes about as long as making fresh French toast but with a few small added steps. The prep time can be significantly cut down if you have an electric griddle too!
- It's frugal. Not only are you making your own food (cheaper than eating out), but you're also using pretty affordable pantry ingredients to do this. Cheap bread, a few eggs, some milk, and flavorings are all that's really needed.
Sandwich bread- I like to use sandwich bread for my French toast because it's cheap and easy. You can use any bread preferred, but note that the amount of finished French toast you use will vary based on what bread is used.
Eggs- Use some large eggs to get that custard texture and eggy flavor.
Milk- Adding in some milk is a great way to stretch the egg mixture so that it stretches to coat more slices of bread.
Cinnamon- Adding in some ground cinnamon will give you a wonderful warm flavor in every bite.
Vanilla- This is a flavor enhancer.

🍴 Recipe Tips
Make sure that your griddle or skillet is preheated before adding the french toast. This will prevent the french toast from cooking unevenly, thereby giving you much better results. You will know your pan is ready when water droplets can dance across it.
I like to use a food processor to blend my egg mixture when I'm making large batch french toast like this because 1) it's significantly easier and 2) it's a LOT quicker. That said, a large mixing bowl and whisk can get you the same results and all it will cost you is a little elbow grease.
You can reheat your french toast by placing a single piece of frozen french toast on a microwave safe plate and heating for 30 seconds. Two slices will take about 1 minute, etc. Do not overlap the french toast as that may cause it to take longer to heat thoroughly.
🥗 Side Dishes
You can serve this french toast recipe with just about any breakfast side dish you want!
Our favorite breakfast side dishes include Hashbrowns, fresh fruit, orange juice, and bacon.
If your french toast is soggy, it could be that you either oversoaked the bread or that you had too high of a temperature on your pan, resulting in cooked outsides and raw centers.
Adding milk to the french toast mixture helps to soften the bread and give a more custard-like consistency in the center, and it helps to coat the bread.
Berries like strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries are all great ideas. I recommend using fresh and not frozen berries for the best looking and tasting results. Frozen berries tend to get mushy when thawing.
