This French Toast Breakfast Sandwich recreates the traditional breakfast sandwich by incorporating the flavors of French Toast.


Units Scale
  • 3 tbsp butter, divided
  • 5 organic large brown eggs, divided
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tsp crushed red peppers
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 4 brioche bread slices
  • 2 sliced Swiss cheese


  1. Combine 1 egg, parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, crusted red peppers, sea salt, and black pepper in a mixing bowl. Whisk (paid link) together until the color is uniform and the eggs are airy.
  2. Heat a skillet to medium heat. Add 1 tsp of butter. Once the butter is melted, add your eggs and reduce the heat to medium-low. Using a rubber spatula (paid link), slowly push the eggs away from the edges of the pan, gently stirring and folding. Repeat until the eggs form into soft curds. Remove the eggs from the heat when they are slightly “wet,” as they will continue cooking after removing them from the skillet. Set the eggs to the side.
  3. Add 1 egg, evaporated milk, sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg to a mixing bowl and whisk (paid link) together. Dip each slice of brioche into the custard mixture on one side of the bread. Allow the bread to soak in the custard for at least 30 seconds. Place on a large plate and set to the side.
  4. Add 2 tbsp butter to a large skillet. Once the butter is melted, add the french toast, dipped side down, to the skillet. Layer with a slice of Swiss cheese, 1/2 of the cooked scrambled eggs, a second slice of Swiss cheese, and the second dipped bread, with the dipped side facing out. Cook for 3 minutes, then flip, cooking the other side for an additional 3 minutes. Serve hot.
