Amber's French Bagels (French Toast)

"Recipe from a blog: "When life hands you bagels....Make french bagels. I am not quite sure how I came up with the idea to make french toast out of bagels but I am glad I did. I do not know why but french toast just tastes better when it is made out of a bagel.""

Ready In:
4 slices




  • Beat the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and salt together.
  • Coat the bagels in the egg mixture and place in preheated buttered pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
  • (I like to smash the bagels down with a spatula as they are cooking so they get a little bit crispy on both sides).

    They tasted great! Next time I'll cut the bagel into thirds. Maybe I should have let them soak longer in the eggs, or baked them in the oven. They were a little hard to cut through (they were pretty thick bagels), unless you just pick them up and eat them.

    I am on vacation had some bagels and eggs to use up and tried this. Turned out yummy, even though I did burn the bagels (not my stove). I didn't have vanilla, or cinnamon and forgot the salt...but I had some ripe bananas (I smashed) and some maple syrup that I added to the milk and eggs. Then fried up. I also made a fried banana topping with butter bananas and a little maple syrup...yummy on top! It was good thanks. Relatively easy, except for the burnt part ;( gave it some crunch though. Will try again as written, thanks.

    If it is a thicker type bagel, cut into thirds.

Cooking is my #1 hobby. Ironically, I became interested in all things cullinary after I had gastric bypass surgery 7 years ago. Losing that much weight & as quickly as I did really changed my relationship with food. (I lost 128 lbs - 258 lbs before, 130 lbs now)
