Trader Joe’s French Toast Brioche

Trader Joe's Brioche French Toast



Sonia and my remote work began long before we were full-time travelers and well before the covid-19 madness. Actually, we have been working from home together since late 2016, but my experience is much longer.

We quickly learned that the whole “staying in your pajamas every day because you want” philosophy had a few flaws. Number one was weight gain. It’s easy to believe that my sweatpants are the same size as they were yesterday. I’m not losing weight. Put on some jeans and khakis and you’ll hear a completely different story. “Hmm. These must have been left in the dryer for too long. My belt has clearly shrunk because of the humidity. Yeah, that’s it.”

It is much easier to get “pleasantly plump” when you aren’t getting out as often. How do you make it happen? Do whatever you can to exercise as often and as often as possible. Watch what you eat. While I’m not the most fit person out there, I am determined to keep my fitness goals in check. I am standing firm in the fight against the bulge. We might all do a favor by having some food shortages. Maybe we will all starve to death. The future will show.

Sonia and myself ate two pieces of brioche French Toast yesterday morning. Although they’re quite filling, one of them might have been enough for us, we were still very hungry. This is to put it into perspective: two of these delicious carb-o riffic breakfast breads are less caloric than one package of Pop-Tarts. Who among us has ever eaten two Pop-Tarts at once? Let him throw the first stone.

Trader Joe’s Brioche French toast is delicious. Even without any syrup, it’s delicious. You will find lots of fluffy white bread and a distinct eggy flavor.

Our first toasts were made in the oven. The toasts didn’t turn out quite as crispy as I had hoped, but they were still delicious. The outer layers of French toast were firm and dense, but the inner layers were soft and light. The microwave made the French toast a bit less tasty, with everything ending up a touch more “chewy,” yet still delicious. The microwave heats up 15 minutes faster than an oven and this is not including pre-heating. We enjoyed them with maple syrup and butter in each case.

For $3.49, four pieces thick of delicious toast. Four stars per piece

Bottom line: 8/10
