Every year for my wedding anniversary I try and give my wife a day to remember. For this year I made my special French toast recipe that I served her while in bed. So, what makes this recipe so special you might ask? The secret to this recipe is a combination of things. I hope you give this recipe a try as it is one of my family's favorites.

  • Breakfast in bed
  • Keeping the toddler from waking up mama
  • Cutting fresh flowers for the wife to smell
  • Fresh hot coffee

French Toast Ingredients:

  • French Brioche Bread
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 Cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 2 Medium eggs
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract

Step 1. In a large bowl mix together cinnamon, whipping cream, milk, brown sugar, vanilla. Step 2. Dip bread into mixture on both sides so the bread absorbs the liquid mixture. Step 3. Place bread into frying pan with a pad of butter. Step 4. Cook on each side until the cooked side is golden brown (about 30 seconds on each side) and then flip to the other side. Step 5. Add your favorite fruit toppings and enjoy!

Fireball Whiskey Sauce:


  • 1/2 oz. Fireball whiskey
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 pad of butter (1 tbsp)

Step 1. In a saucepan turn on medium heat and melt down one pad of butter. Step 2. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and whiskey in the saucepan. Step 3. Cook on medium heat for 80 seconds and serve on French toast. Tip: this sauce will set up after about 5 minutes without heat.
