Who doesn’t love French toast? This breakfast and brunch favorite has it all: a warm, golden sheen from the griddle, plush slices of bread, and a lick of maple sweetness to finish it all off. It’s hard to imagine improving on such an epic classic, but our friends at The Bread Gal have done it.
They started with their soft, fluffy Pullman loaf, then added bits of of creamy white chocolate and sliced it thick. Although this bread has plenty of uses—you can create an ice cream sandwich or top it with your favorite sweet spread—it really steals the spotlight when you use it in French toast.
The Bread Gal is no novice when it comes to creating exceptional baked goods. There are 25 years of experience behind this New Jersey based, woman-owned bakery. The Bread Gal does everything by hand, using only the best ingredients and no additives or preservatives to create their extensive artisanal selection.

Bread Gal’s White Chocolate French Toast Recipe
What You’ll Need:
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Small pinch of salt
2 tablespoons butter, plus more as needed
7 slices Bread Gal White Chocolate French Toast
Optional toppings: maple syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, melted white chocolate, chocolate syrup, caramel sauce
What To Do:
In a bowl, beat together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Heat a pan over medium low and add 1 tbsp butter, allowing to melt.
Dip a slice of Bread Gal White Chocolate French Toast into the egg mixture, coating all over, and let the bread soak briefly. Place the slice in the pan and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Repeat this with additional slices of bread, adding more butter as needed to coat the pan (you should have enough of the egg mixture to coat the whole loaf).
Add your desired toppings and serve.
