Want to take it up a notch? Crush up some Frosted Flakes in a flat-bottomed dish and dredge your bread slices through the cereal after the custard. Cook per usual. The sugar on the cereal caramelizes just a wee bit. Delicious!

For best results, place the bread slices on a plate or wire rack overnight before cooking.


  • 8 slices thick bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, warmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 6 tablespoons butter



  1. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Place a rack-lined sheet pan in the oven. Prepare a second sheet pan with a wire rack.
  3. Make the custard by whisking together eggs, half and half, maple syrup, salt, and cinnamon/nutmeg (if using).
  4. Pour custard into a flat-bottomed dish that accommodates 1-2 slices of bread.
  5. Dip bread in the custard for 30 seconds on each side. Place on the 2nd wire rack for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan or griddle at medium-low heat. Cook 2 pieces of bread at a time, about 1-2 minutes each side.
  7. Place cooked slices on the rack in the oven for about 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining slices of bread.
  8. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings.
