Oven French Toast Tips and Tricks
This French toast recipe really couldn’t be any easier, but it’s important to keep in mind a few tips and tricks to ensure that you’re whipping up the perfect batch of French toast 😀
Don’t skip the cinnamon!
We never skip the cinnamon when making French toast! It gives each slice that perfect sweet flavor without adding any sugar at all. The best way to get an even coating of cinnamon on each slice is to sprinkle it after the slices have been dipped in the egg mixture and placed on the baking sheet.
Use a sliced bread you love!
If you don’t like the bread you’re starting with, you’re not going to love the French toast! We love using whole grain bread for French toast (Dave’s Killer Bread is one of our faves!), but if you have a favorite brand of sliced bread, go for it!
Love crispier French toast?
Bake that French toast at 375ºF! The higher baking temperature will allow the edges of the slices to get nice and crispy. You’ll bake for 8 minutes and then flip each slice. Then, place back into the oven, and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes, depending on your oven.
Love chewier French toast?
Bake at 350ºF! The lower baking temperature will allow your French toast to cook more slowly, creating chewier French toasty goodness. You’ll bake for 10 minutes and then flip each slice. Then, bake for an additional 4-6 minutes, depending on your oven.
French Toast Toppings

- 8 slices whole grain bread
- 5 large eggs

- Preheat the oven to 350ºF and generously spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
- Next, whisk eggs and almond milk together in a medium mixing bowl or Pyrex.
- Carefully dip 1 slice of bread into the egg mixture. Make sure bread is fully submerged in the egg mixture. Let excess egg mixture drip from the bread and then place bread onto the baking sheet. Repeat until you have dipped all pieces of bread.
- Season French toast with ground cinnamon, to taste.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake at 350ºF for around 10 minutes.
