What’s better than whiskey for breakfast? Not much, which is why this french toast is the best St. Patrick’s Day breakfast out there.


8 thick slices French bread
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
1/4 cup Irish whiskey
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract (or vanilla)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
2-3 tablespoons unsalted butter, for cooking
Powdered sugar, for serving
Maple syrup, for serving

Adult Whipped Cream:

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons Irish whiskey
2 tablespoons honey
Dash of vanilla extract


1) Cut 8 thick slices of French bread. Stale bread works best.

2) In a large dish, stir together milk, eggs, whiskey, sugar, almond extract, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

3) Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large skillet or on a griddle over medium-high heat. Once melted, add bread slices to the mixed custard mixture. Let rest for a few seconds and flip.

4) Move bread slices straight from custard to pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side until nicely browned.

5) Serve French toast immediately with powdered sugar, maple syrup and adult whipped cream.

For whipped cream, stir together the ingredients in a metal mixing bowl (cold works best). Whisk until the mixture holds stiff peaks. Chill until needed. You can also use a stand mixer with the whisk attachment for this.
