French Toast Bar

Jump to Recipe

Easter is a week away and in my mind that also marks the start of brunch season! What better way to celebrate that, than with a French Toast Bar!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, bars are my favorite way to entertain. From the Bruschetta Bar to the S'mores Bar and now this French Toast Bar, they are the best! Big boards full of food that your guests can mix or match to create their own perfect meal. I'm obsessed and don't see that changing anytime soon!

Whip up a batch of my Vanilla Bean French Toast inspired by my culinary school days, and then top it with anything your heart desires!! Bacon, apples, whipped cream, butter, nutella, berries - the possibilities are ENDLESS!
