I’m not sure if I should start this post with the confession that I don’t like french toast or not. I try it every so often to make sure I still don’t like it. Because let’s face it, it’s a breakfast food and I adore all things breakfast. Except eggs. And that might be my hang up with french toast. I’ve had it in diners where it still has little bits of fried egg hanging off the side. No thanks.

I’ve had it in diners where it still has little bits of fried egg hanging off the side. No thanks. My family likes to make it at home so that it’s soggy in the middle but crunchy around the edges and that just leaves too much of an eggy taste for me. Bleh.

But every so often I just want french toast. Which sounds so weird given my recent confession {like right up there} that I don’t even like it.

It’s fine. I’m a complicated person.

I made a baked french toast casserole for my brother’s birthday last year but it was still soggy in the middle despite the recipe promising it wouldn’t be. So during my most recent french toast craving I decided to try baked french toast muffins. I figured the smaller portions would firm up much better in the center and do away with the eggy taste I’m not a fan of.

And boy was I right. Plus that cinnamon streusel topping gives these a nice crunch on the top that makes my taste buds happy. And yours too!

Drown them in syrup, dust them with powdered sugar, drizzle them with vanilla frosting or eat them plain. However you choose to enjoy them you won’t regret it!

Say goodbye to your french toast hating days with these bad boys!
