How to make Oreo French Toast
Making Oreo French Toast is actually very easy. It’s a perfect indulgent-but-quick breakfast recipe for busy mornings, and is a fun thing to make to impress a crowd too.
Grab a medium sized mixing bowl and whisk eggs and milk together in it (a shallow bowl works best).
Now we are going to crush the Oreos by using a rolling pin and rolling it over a ziplock bag filled with your Oreos. It’s okay to have both large and small pieces.
In a saucepan on the stovetop, melt the butter.
Dip your brioche bread slices into the mixing bowl liquid ingredients before straining and dipping it into the Oreo crumbs and pressing it down to get some Oreo pieces to stick to the bread slices.
Place your coated bread slices in a pan on the stove and bake for 3 minutes on each side.
Whisk your glaze ingredients together in a bowl until smooth and serve the french toast with the glaze poured on top.
Garnish with more Oreo pieces and crumbs if you desire.
Oreo French Toast Tips
All your standard French Toast tips will apply here. You want to use a slice of bread that is slightly stale (not crispy-stale, just day-old stale, bestie!). When coating your bread in the egg mixture, you want it to be more of a quick dunk than a prolonged soak (this will depend quite a bit on how stale your bread is – the staler it is, the longer it can soak without breaking).
And of course, when flipping your French toast on a griddle or in a skillet, do so gently. (You don’t need to be quite as gentle as when you’re flipping pancakes, but avoid going too hard for the sake of your bread!)
How to crush Oreos
Crushing up your Oreos is really easy to do. Grab your sleeve of Oreos and place them in a large gallon-sized ZipLoc bag and zip it up.
Lay it flat on the counter and use a rolling pin to roll over the cookies. Pieces don’t have to be a uniform size, you can have both big and small broken Oreo pieces.
What if you don’t have a rolling pin to crush the Oreos? That’s not a problem! You just need something that can roll and has a little weight to be able to break up the Oreo cookies.
You can use a glass, a bottle of soda, or even a bottle of wine to crush the cookies. Get creative if you need to! And if you want to use a blender and just pulse those pesky biscuits into submission? You can do that too.
If all else fails, just start crushing the cookies from the outside of the bag with your hands. Where there’s a will to make this incredible French Toast with Oreo Glaze, there’s most certainly a way to make it happen!
Oh no! Are you out of Oreos, or can’t find any at the store? You can also use the Golden Oreos for another flavor variation.
Did you know Oreo has released over 60 different flavors?! Crazy, right?! That’s a ton of flavors to choose from when making this easy French Toast recipe. Personally, I think the Birthday Cake Oreos would be another fantastic choice.
Oreo Thins would be another unique choice to give a try on this breakfast recipe.
Using a store-brand Oreo type cookie like chocolate cream sandwiches is also a great option!
Now if you’ve tried this already, and you really want to mix things up a bit (I mean, more than just changing your Oreo’s flavor), here are a few suggestions:
Whipped cream. A generous dollop of whipped cream is always an excellent addition to any sweet French Toast recipe.
Oreo stuffed French Toast. This is a simple change but it can make a difference to some…switch up the ordering of your French Toast. Instead of pouring our labneh-based frosting over the top, only sandwich it inside the Oreo French Toast.
Cream cheese. Swap out the labneh and create your “Oreo cream frosting” using cream cheese instead. (Note: this will take some experimenting on your part to get the ratios and the consistency just right!)
Fresh berries. Adding berries such as raspberries or blueberries will add a nice tangy note to this brunch recipe (it’ll also add some antioxidants, which is always nice).
Oreo syrup. If you want an uber-indulgent finish, create an Oreo syrup using whipping cream, dark chocolate, and crushed Oreos. (If you’re doing this, you may want to avoid adding any maple syrup to your French toast to prevent it from becoming too sickly sweet.)
