How To Make Thai French Toast Video

Breakfast in bed just got a whole lot sweeter

This Thai spin on classic French toast involves all the usual suspects: pillowy bread, dredged in a creamy custard, cooked until golden brown and finished with sweet syrupy goodness. But here's the twist: We take the breakfast staple you know and love, and deep-fry it for the ultimate a.m. indulgence (see the recipe).

Forget pad Thai—this dreamy treat is your wok's true calling. All you have to do is soak a few slices of unassuming white bread in the simplest custard, drop them in a couple inches of bubbling oil and let them sizzle until they reach crispy perfection.

To serve, swap your traditional pancake syrup for a generous drizzle of sweetened condensed milk, and you're done. Our food editor also suggests going savory by topping your toast with a fried egg, dark soy sauce and a splash of chile oil.
