Tsoureki French Toast~ A Must Try!

If you have left over tsoureki from Easter, don’t throw it away! Save your stale tsoureki, and make this delicious recipe. Wait, stale doesn’t sound good, but I’m telling you it’s worth a try to turn stale into soft and fluffy French toast. 💗💗

Let’s get to the yumminess. 🙂

Featured below is the famous Tsoureki bread. Usually served during Greek Easter, this bread is packed with wonderful flavors. I used mahlepi, mastika, vanilla, cardamom, orange zest and ouzo. Yes, ouzo! If you haven’t tried adding ouzo, please do.

“The best breakfast in the entire universe!” Okay, this is what my family said. I am just quoting them. Lol

  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 10 slices of tsoureki bread
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoon Grand Marnier/ Amaretto liquor
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Optional- cinnamon
  • Optional- Canadian maple syrup



  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, amaretto, and salt. Pour the mix over the bread.  Let the bread mixture soak for a few minutes.
  2. In a large pan, melt a tablespoon of butter. Add three to four tsoureki in the pan, and cook until golden brown on each side. Repeat until all tsoureki are cooked.
  3. Serve it warm with powdered sugar and cinnamon.
