French toast doesn't always have to be sweet! Here's a savoury French toast with cheese and garlic for a twist on a normally sweet dish.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 4 slices of bread
  • 2 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder or 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • butter for frying


  1. Heat frying pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Whisk egg, milk, cheese, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Melt some butter in the pan.
  4. Dip one slice of bread in the egg mixture. Let it soak in for 10 seconds, flip the bread over and soak for a few more seconds, longer for thick-cut bread.
  5. Fry the egg-soaked bread in the pan for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden.
  6. Add extra butter to the pan and repeat with the other pieces of bread.
  7. Top with your favourite toppings before serving.


I topped my savoury French toast with bacon, avocado, and chopped fresh tomato. Fried mushrooms would also be yum.
