Love French Toast, But Hate Those Tough Crusts?? We’ve Got The Perfect Solution!

In our opinion, French toast is one of the best ways to ring in the weekend. We love the classic dish, we love it baked it into a casserole, and we definitely love it when it’s stacked and baked into a loaf. However, we don’t love when we take a bite of French toast and the crust is toughthat’s a no-no for us. So we decided to prepare our dish a little differently, ensuring that there were no tough-crust bites to be had!

Love French Toast, But Hate Those Tough Crusts?? We've Got The Perfect Solution!

Crustless Banana French Toast

Serves 4


  • bananas, as needed, sliced
  • 1 loaf Challah bread (the staler the better), sliced
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • unsalted butter or non-stick spray, as needed
  • maple syrup, optional


  1. Take a large cookie cutter or empty can with a large circumference and cut out the centers of your slices of bread, leaving the crusts off.
    Note: you can use a smaller cookie cutter to get multiple crustless circles out of each slice of bread.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the milk, heavy cream and eggs together until combined, then stir in brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  3. Heat butter in a large pan or skillet over medium heat until melted and hot.
  4. Dunk bread circles in milk mixture and keep them submerged to absorb all the liquid.
  5. Working in batches, cook 2-3 french toast circles until golden brown, then flip and cook on the other side. 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Serve french toast hot with bananas and maple syrup.
