Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or just for yourself, this Blackstone French Toast recipe is just what you need to start the morning right!
French toast is one of my favorite options when I’m in the mood for breakfast on the Blackstone. There’s just a few simple ingredients that we always have on hand and it comes together so quickly.
Plus, French toast is super versatile. Obviously it makes a great breakfast by itself, but you can pair it with all sorts of sides and toppings.
And who said you can only eat it for breakfast? There’s nothing wrong with some mouth-watering French toast for lunch or dinner too. It’s a great way to get rid of bread that’s starting to go stale.
Ingredients For Blackstone French Toast
What do you need to make French toast? Just a few simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.
- Sliced Bread – French toast is traditionally made with thick slices of bread like Texas Toast. I’ve made it with all sorts of bread and this recipe comes out great no matter what kind you use. In the pictures on this post I used Sarah Lee Artesano bread I picked up at the grocery store.
- Eggs – On average, one egg is enough for two pieces of French toast.
- Milk – Either low fat or whole milk work fine. You can also use half and half instead.
- Vanilla extract – If you skip the vanilla, it just won’t taste the same. Look for real vanilla extract. The imitation stuff is cheaper but not nearly as good.
- Sugar – granulated sugar adds some sweetness to your French toast.
- Cinnamon – a little bit of cinnamon adds a nice background flavor and really takes your French toast up a notch.
- Vegetable oil/butter – A well-seasoned griddle should be pretty close to nonstick, but a very light coating of oil or butter will ensure your French toast comes off easily.
How To Make French Toast On A Blackstone Griddle
Start by preheating your griddle to medium heat. Aim for a temperature of about 325 F to 350 F. Any higher and you’ll risk burning your French toast and no one wants that.
Pro Tip – I have a 4 burners on my Blackstone and I like to light two of them to medium heat and leave the other two off. This creates a warming zone on the unheated side so as each piece of French toast finishes cooking I can move it to the far end where it will stay warm without continuing to cook.
Whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon in a large shallow dish. Either a pie plate or a Pyrex baking dish will work perfectly.
When the griddle is hot, spread on a very small amount of cooking oil or about a tablespoon of butter.
Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture and make sure both sides are fully coated. Don’t let it soak for too long or it will fall apart. Let any excess egg run back into the dish and then place each slice of bread onto the griddle.
Let each slice cook for about two minutes and then use a metal spatula to gently lift and peek under each slice. When the egg mixture is cooked and golden brown, flip and cook the second side for about another two minutes.
When finished, remove and serve while still warm with maple syrup, a dollop of whipped cream, or a sprinkle of confectioner’s sugar.
What To Serve With French Toast
The possibilities are limitless! Here are some suggestions for the best French toast side dishes:
- Fresh fruit – Strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries are my favorite!
- Eggs – scrambled, over easy, sunny side up, an omelet, it’s all good.
- Breakfast sausage
- Bacon – I love to make bacon on the Blackstone
- Grilled peaches – ripe peaches are a perfect summer side dish
- Caramelized bananas
- Mimosas – For adults only of course!
How long does French toast last in the fridge?
If stored properly, you can keep French toast in the fridge for about four or five days. You should store it in an airtight container or resealable bag and remove as much air as possible before sealing it.
What’s the best way to reheat French toast?
Pop leftover French toast in the microwave or toaster to reheat. You can also reheat on the stove or right on your griddle over low heat and with just a little bit of oil to keep it moist.

- 8 slices of bread
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat your griddle to low-medium heat (about 325 F to 350 F).
- In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, and cinnamon.
- Lightly spread some vegetable oil or butter on the griddle surface to prevent sticking.
- Dip each slice of bread in the egg mixture and ensure both sides are covered, then place the bread on the griddle.
- Cook for about 2 minutes and then use a spatula to check if the egg batter is cooked. Flip each slice when the bottom is golden brown and cook the second side for about another 2 minutes.
- When the second side is done cooking, remove and serve while still warm.
Serve your French Toast with maple syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, or powdered sugar.
Pro Tip - I like to keep 2 burners on and 2 burners turned off. As the French toast is cooked I move it to the other side where it will stay warm without continuing to cook.
Use a zester to add a pinch of fresh nutmeg to the egg batter for an extra kick of flavor.
