Using egg whites in this sourdough french toast recipe has a number of benefits. Egg whites are an excellent source of protein and amino acids, which help make sourdough or frozen french toast even more nutritious. They also provide a light texture to the sourdough french toast, resulting in a fluffy and airy texture. Additionally, the protein in egg whites helps bind the sourdough bread together while cooking, ensuring they don’t get soggy or fall apart during the process.

In this recipe I am beating the egg whites to help lighten the french toast batter up and make it more airy but you don’t need to do this, you can just use the egg whites with the normal eggs for a more traditional version.

What Tools You WIll Need

Directions

Step 01

In a mixing bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Step 02

Using a shallow bowl or baking pan add the whole eggs, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and milk. Mix well and then add the egg whites. Stir the egg whites into the mixture until well combined.

Step 03

Preheat a frying pan on medium to medium-high heat. Dip the sourdough bread into the milk mixture 1 piece at a time and coat both sides with the egg mixture. Lightly spray the frying pan to prevent sticking if necessary and add the french toast. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown.

Step 04

Top your french toast off with any of your favorite toppings. Serve Warm & Enjoy!

Notes:

  • If you prefer a more traditional french toast then you do not need to beat the egg whites and can just add them to the rest of the mixture.
  • Be sure to keep an eye on the heat you are cooking at so you do not burn the toast before it is cooked through.
  • Top off your french toast with fresh berries, fresh fruit, whipped cream, powdered sugar, maple syrup or any of your favorite toppings.
  • Store your french toast in a freezer bag or airtight container and freeze it for meals later on. Just reheat in a toaster oven or toaster when ready to eat.
  • A Nonstick pan or cast iron skillet works best for french toast to prevent sticking.
  • Always preheat your skillet. Having a hot skillet gives the toast that browned crispy exterior. Usually best on medium to medium-high heat.

FAQ

Why Does Sourdough Bread Work Well For French Toast?

Sourdough bread works particularly well for french toast because it has a unique flavor that pairs perfectly with the other ingredients in this recipe. It also has an ideal texture to create a crunchy exterior and soft interior in every bite, making sourdough French toast irresistible! The sourness of sourdough helps to balance out the sweetness of sugar while adding an extra layer of flavor. Ideally, you can find fresh sourdough bread at a local bakery for the very best french toast results.

What Is The Most Common Mistake When Making French Toast?

The most common mistake when making sourdough french bread slices or toast is not using enough egg mixture. The eggs act as a binding agent, so if you don’t use enough it can cause the sourdough or whatever bread you are using to fall apart while cooking.

Why Doesn't My French Toast Get Crispy?

If your sourdough French toast isn’t getting crispy, then you may need to adjust the cooking time or temperature. Make sure to cook the sourdough French toast on medium-low to medium-high heat for about 2-3 minutes per side until it is golden brown and crispy. Additionally, make sure not to overcrowd the pan

How Long Should You Soak Your French Toast For?

You want to dunk your toast on both sides for roughly 5 to 10 seconds until you get a nice eggy bread but not so long that you get soaked bread that begins to fall apart. If you allow the toast to sit in the mixture for too long, it will fall apart. You should be able to feel that the toast has absorbed the egg mixture but hasn’t become soggy. Usually, thick slices of bread can help with this.

What Are The Best Toppings For French Toast?

Some of the most popular options when topping off your french toast are Sliced banana or other fresh fruit and fresh berries. You can also add your favorite maple syrup, whipped cream, powdered sugar, peanut butter or almond butter
