Foenegreek Gouda Grilled French Toast

Recipe by Gouda Chef ®Molly Schraufnagel

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 8 slices of hearty white bread

  • 1 ½ cups half and half, warmed

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons butter melted

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 1 pound bacon, cooked

  • 6 ounces Marieke’s Foenegreek Gouda, shredded

  • 2 – 3 tablespoons butter, softened


  1. Heat large skillet over medium heat, coat with cooking spray. 

  2. Whisk the half and half, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, and vanilla together in a medium bowl. Transfer to a large shallow dish. Soak each slice of bread one at a time and add to skillet, cook until golden brown, 4-5 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until both sides are a golden brown. Repeat with all bread.

  3. On a clean work surface lay out your French toast. Place bacon on 4 slices of bread and top each with ¼ of the cheese. Top each with a remaining French Toast, press down gently to set. Spread the sandwich tops with half the softened butter.

  4. Place sandwiches, buttered side down in the skillet. Spread the remaining side of each sandwich with the remaining butter. Cook until crisp and golden brown and cheese is starting to melt, flip and continue cooking until cheese is completely melted. Serve immediately with your favorite syrup. Enjoy!
