Sweet on Trader Joe's Sunday: Brioche French Toast

Sunday seems like the perfect day for French toast, doesn't it? French toast is one of those things I whip up when I'm in a hurry, but this frozen version from TJ's looked worth a try.

Read all of our reviews of Trader Joe's treats and sweets here!

You'll find it in the freezer section. A box of 4 toasts is $3.69. They're packaged inside in groups of two. The package offers directions for heating in the oven, microwave, or toaster oven. We chose to try the regular oven.

PS: Mr. E likes his with maple syrup. I'm a powdered sugar girl.

He (Mr. E) says: Who said 4-o'clock isn't a good time for French toast?  Not I.  I must admit that I didn't take a bite before adding a liberal amount of Vermont maple syrup AND powdered sugar, but I could still detect the brioche-difference.  The crust was a little on the crunchy side, which I liked at first, but could have done without after finishing the serving.  Pretty, pretty, pretty...good, for a frozen TJ's product.

She says: A note on the cooking method - we heated these in the oven, which made for crunchy edges. I much prefer a soft French toast, so I might go with the microwave next time. The toast is good, not stellar. There's a flavor there I can't put my finger on (and the box just lists "natural flavors"). If you don't keep bread in the house, it might be nice to have a box in the freezer when a craving strikes.
