Prosciutto Bruschetta on thick slices of French toast…does it get any better?!

This French toast is delicious any time of year and this savory breakfast is one of my latest obsessions.

Let me tell you why:

  • It sounds fancy but is simple to make!
  • It’s fresh, tasty and full of flavor
  • Prosciutto Bruschetta is good as is…but then paired with a Parmesan crusted piece of French toast is simply mind-blowing.
  • It’s basically brunch goals and you’re going to love it too!

Ingredients you will need:

  • Bread: Thick slices of French bread is what I used for this Prosciutto Bruschetta french toast. It’s soft on the inside, sturdy/holds up well, and is chewy. The bread needs to be dry so I toasted it in the oven at 250°F for 20 minutes, or you can leave out on the counter, sliced, overnight.
    • Pro tip: slightly stale bread is actually the best for making French toast because stale bread absorbs more of the egg mixture than fresh bread will. Other breads to use: brioche, challah, any thick white bread like “Texas Toast.”

Step by Step Directions

  1. Make the bruschetta mixture first: in a medium sized bowl combine the diced tomatoes, basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
  2. Make the custard for the French toast: whisk the eggs. Then add in the milk and pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk again to incorporate.
  3. Dunk bread in custard for 20-30 seconds each side.
  4. Coat both sides of bread in shredded Parmesan.
  5. Cook French toast in a nonstick skillet, 3-5 minutes each side.
  6. Load it up and serve! Top with a slice of prosciutto and a few tablespoons of the tomatoes & basil.
