Orange Vanilla Grilled French Toast Recipe
This orange vanilla french toast on the grill recipe can get a little messy, but the char and smoke you get from the pellet grill makes it worth it. We recommend using slightly stale sourdough because the texture holds up on the grill best. You could also use brioche or Texas toast.
- 8 slices day-old sourdough bread
- 4 eggs
- ¼ C milk
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 TB sugar
- ¼ tsp orange zest
In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients (other than bread) until it’s well blended. Place the egg mixture in a shallow bowl. Preheat the Grilla to 350 degrees. Take the bowl to your Grilla with you. Soak the first piece of bread for about 5 seconds on each side, then place the soaked bread on the pellet grill. Keep adding slices of bread until they are all on. Flip the first piece after 3 minutes. As you flip the done side up, you can dust with more fresh cinnamon and orange zest. After another 2 to 3 minutes, the slice should be golden brown.
Remove the grilled toast from Grilla and serve with melted butter and warm maple syrup.
