Ingredients

  • 2 cups half and half
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 loaf crusty Italian bread, cut into 12 slices
  • grilled fruit compote for serving (see separate recipe)
  • maple syrup and/or powdered sugar for serving (optional)
  • Chef notes

    Make French toast on your grill with this easy recipe that's sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

    Preparation

    Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to 450-500 degrees F or medium-high direct heat. Place a cast iron griddle on the grates to preheat.

    Whisk the half and half, eggs, sugar and cinnamon together in a wide, shallow bowl such as a pie plate until the sugar dissolves.

    One at a time, dip the slices of bread in the half and half mixture to fully coat the slice. Only dip as many as will fit on the griddle, reserving the rest.

    Close the grill cover and let the slices cook until browned on one side; timing will vary based on your grill, but should take no longer than 3-4 minutes.

    Flip and cook to brown the other side, then repeat with the remaining bread and batter.

    Serve with the grilled fruit compote and/or maple syrup and powdered sugar.
