Preparing the French Toast Mixture

Making French toast on a Blackstone griddle starts with preparing the egg mixture properly. This ensures your French toast turns out flavorful and delicious. Here’s how to get the mixture just right.

Gathering the Ingredients

To begin, you’ll need eggs, milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and sugar. You can also use heavy cream or buttermilk for a richer taste.

Granulated sugar is preferred for a smoother texture. If you like a hint of saltiness, add a pinch of salt. Measure out all these ingredients before mixing.

Having your ingredients ready makes the process quicker and ensures a consistent taste in every slice.

Creating the Egg Mixture

Crack 4 eggs into a shallow dish or bowl. Add 1 cup of milk or substitute with heavy cream or buttermilk for extra richness. Pour in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

This adds a nice aroma and depth to the flavor. Next, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.

For better consistency, whisk these ingredients thoroughly until the mixture is smooth and well combined.

If desired, add a pinch of salt to enhance the sweetness and balance the flavors.

Your egg mixture is now ready to coat slices of bread before cooking on the griddle. Make sure the bread is soaked evenly but not too long to avoid sogginess.

Cooking on the Blackstone Griddle

Cooking French toast on a Blackstone griddle involves managing the griddle temperature and using the right kind of oil, as well as knowing when and how to flip the toast for the best results.

Griddle Temperature and Oil Use

Preheat your Blackstone Griddle to medium-high heat, around 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Maintaining a steady temperature is essential to ensure even cooking.

Use a bit of butter or vegetable oil to prevent sticking. Butter adds rich flavor but can burn quickly, so watch it closely. Vegetable oil has a higher smoke point, making it a safer choice for longer cooking.

Spread the oil or butter evenly with a metal spatula. Make sure the entire griddle surface is coated to avoid any bread sticking to the surface.

Flipping and Cooking Times

Dip each slice of bread in your egg mixture, ensuring both sides are well coated. The egg mixture typically contains eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon mixed in a shallow dish.

Place the coated bread on the preheated griddle. Cook each slice for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Use a wide metal spatula to flip the bread, ensuring it doesn’t tear.

Look for a golden brown color as a sign it is ready to flip. An evenly cooked French toast slice will have a crispy outer layer and soft interior. Adjust your timing slightly if your bread is thicker or thinner than usual.
