This easy French toast is a little lighter than most, made with 2 eggs white and only 1 whole egg. A little vanilla, cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg flavor this tasty French toast.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • dash nutmeg
  • 8 slices French bread, sliced on diagonal
  • cinnamon sugar mixture, optional
  • maple syrup, for serving


In a shallow bowl, whisk egg and egg white until foamy. Whisk in milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Have warming drawer heated or heat oven to 200°.
Heat butter in heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Dip 4 slices of bread in the egg mixture, turning to coat thoroughly. Let excess drip back into bowl.

Place coated bread slices in hot skillet. Cook, turning, until both sides are nicely browned, about 2 minutes each side.

Transfer to a warm plate and keep warm in oven or warming drawer. Repeat with remaining bread and egg mixture. To serve, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, if desired. Serve with maple syrup.

Great Cinnamon French Toast Recipe!!, Member writer1.gal

My 7 year old wanted to learn how to make French toast, so we tried this recipe and loved it! A little difficult for a 7 year old to crack the egg and only use egg whites, but perfect amount for 5 pieces of french toast. Came out perfectly! Highly recommend and will be making again. The only detractor is would be nice to have dietary information on this recipe.
