We All Need Something Sweet in Life, at Least for Me - Cheesy Brioche French Toast

Sweets can sure, sweets can heal, at least mentally it can make me feel better at the moment. Perhaps I'll crash after that sugar rush, but thank God I've got 30 minutes of paradise to live in.

Cheesy brioche French toast -

Ingredients (for two)?

  • 2 thick brioche toast slices
  • 2 Cheddar cheese squares
  • 1 egg
  • 200 ml whole milk
  • 30 grams granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Some confectioners' sugar
  • Some fresh mint leaves (optional, garnish only)


Slice the brioche toast, make an opening on top but don't cut all the way down. Insert one cheese square on each toast, fold in any parts lingering outside the bread.

Prepare the milky dip. Take a baking dish or any container with some depth, mix in the egg, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and whole milk. 

Whisk and make sure the sugar has been fully dissolved.

Soak the bread, about few minutes on each side. Perhaps with a tong to help flipping the thick toasts.

Take a nonstick pan and add in the butter. Turn to medium heat and wait till the butter melts.

Transfer the bread over and sear till slightly browned. Flip and continue to sear the other side. Also use the kitchen tong to hold the bread, sear remaining sides till slightly colored.

Plate and dust with confectioners' sugar, garnish with fresh mint leaves if desired. Just look prettier with that pop of green.

You can also serve this sweet and savory brioche French toast with some fresh fruits, berries especially. Maybe drizzle some maple syrup to make it even sweeter. 

After all, I really need that brush of sweetness now. Pair with buttery aroma in the kitchen, it can be the best therapy ever.
