Kentucky Bourbon French Toast

Bourbon is perfectly at home at the breakfast table with this hearty French toast that’s infused with the flavors of Kentucky’s most famous spirit. Rather than just dunking each slice of bread in the bourbon batter, let them soak for a few additional seconds for an extra-custardy center.


2 cups whole milk
1/3 cup Kentucky bourbon
5 whole eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

12 slices egg bread, like brioche

Mix the milk, eggs, sugar, bourbon and cinnamon together in a bowl. Melt a pat of butter on a hot griddle. Dip the bread in the batter. Place the battered bread on the griddle and cook until the first side begins to turn golden brown. Flip the French toast and continue to cook until the other side is golden brown, too. Serve with butter, berries and syrup.
