My Favorite French toast made without eggs on a grey plate with maple syrup.

This recipe for French toast without any eggs is an easy, no-nonsense recipe. It is perfect for you if you are allergic to eggs, avoid eggs as part of your dietary choices, or simply don’t have any eggs around.

This is a small batch recipe that makes enough for 2 people, or, for 1 person for 2 days.

In this recipe, buttered bread is soaked in a mixture of almond milk and spices, and cooked to crispy perfection. The milk mixture is spiced so well that you really will not notice the absence of eggs.

This recipe is dedicated to our pup, Ollie. Every time he heard the plastic wrapping on a loaf of bread rustling, he would come running. And, naturally, every morning I toasted up a slice or two for myself, or made some French toast, he had to taste-test a chunk of each slice. His love for bread continued right up until the night before he passed.

Ollie - 10 years and 2 weeks

Our sweet Ollie lost his battle with an aggressive stomach tumor on the morning of Wednesday, April 20th. The most loyal and loving chap I’ve ever known, left us to join his sister, Tawny, over the rainbow. Like his sister, he taught us what unconditional love looks like, what a home feels like, and that you should never start a morning without a hug.

Ollie Charles came into our home on April 7th, 2012. He had been abandoned at a local park, with his three sisters. When we first adopted him from the local shelter, he was one adorable, big ball of fur. My daughter trained him and groomed him into the loving, sweet fella we adored. He left us unexpectedly on April 20th, 2022, and he is so incredibly missed.

The night before he passed, his appetite returned for a bit, and he got to enjoy one of his favorite foods-bread, in all its glory.

A very brief history of French toast…

For the longest time, I just assumed French toast was from France. But, I came to find out that is not the case. French toast as we know it now was said to have been introduced by a Joseph French in Albany, New York.

But, as mentioned in this article, recipes for a milk and spice-soaked bread concoction have been found that date back to the 5th century B.C., in Rome. Apparently, the Romans dipped slices of bread in milk (and sometimes eggs) before frying them, and called their creation: “Pan Dulcis.”
