​I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with plain French toast, but sometimes breakfast needs to be jazzed up a bit.

You probably already have some of these add-ins — marshmallows, half a jar of capers, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups — hanging around in your cupboards or on the refrigerator door, and as an added bonus, the French toast treatment can revive otherwise stale food, like day-old croissants or overripe bananas.

So if you haven’t already, master basic French toast with this recipe here, and then get to these super-simple, but totally decadent variations. My favorite is the BLT — regular bread just won’t do it for me anymore.

Croissant French toast

Double up on the French-ness by using day-old butter croissants instead of bread. Flatten them slightly with your hands or a rolling pin, and soak in the batter for a few minutes to fully absorb the egg mixture. Top it all off with toasted almonds. Très bon!

Lox French toast

In a medium bowl, mix together ½ cup cream cheese, ¼ cup chopped smoked salmon, 1 tablespoon drained capers, and 1 tablespoon chopped red onion until combined. Slice a pocket in a thick slice of challah and stuff it with ¼ cup of filling. Batter up, grill, and serve with sliced tomatoes.

Sausage-stuffed French toast

Thaw out 8 frozen pre-cooked sausage links. Stuff each slice of challah bread (you cut a pocket in it, remember?) with 2 links, batter, grill, and serve with lots of maple syrup.

S’mores French toast

Stuff 2 jumbo marshmallows and 6 Hershey’s chocolate squares into thick slices of challah. Batter and grill them as usual. No need for syrup… this is sweet enough. The marshmallows melt into the bread as it cooks, making the French toast taste like marshmallow custard.
