What is custard yogurt toast?

It’s a viral TikTok recipe that’s like French toast except rather than soaking bread in an egg mixture, you are spreading a simple custard yogurt on top.

While the basic ingredients are bread, yogurt, and egg, there are endless ways to customize the toast to your mood and whatever you have on hand.

It’s such a fun way to incorporate more variety and nutrition into your child’s breakfast (and yours!) or any meal in the day. Breakfast for dinner is always welcome at my house!

And here are some ideas if you just want to toast the bread and top it, traditional style.

Ingredients

all the ingredients laid out on a white background

I am highlighting just the ones that need further explanation. The complete list is in the recipe card below.

  • Bread – While any bread will work, including sourdough, white, and whole grain, a soft and thick bread works best. I personally love brioche bread.
  • Yogurt – I recommend using whole milk to give custard it’s signature creamy texture. You can use either regular or Greek yogurt. The latter will result in a creamier and tangier custard toast.
  • Egg – while custard is traditionally made with just the yolk, you can use the whole egg for this. While it will no longer be custard, you can also use flax egg as a substitute for eggs.
  • Sweetener – you don’t need a lot especially if intending to top with additional fruits. You can use honey, maple syrup, or date syrup for a no added sugar option. You can also leave it out completely and try some of the toppings as suggested below.

Variations and Add-ins

Custard yogurt toast 3 ways - basic with berries, strawberry filling with drizzle of peanut butter, vegetable cheese toast.

This list may look overwhelming, BUT I wanted to provide you with all the possible variations that I could think of! Have fun trying them all :).

Pictured:

  • Top: yogurt, egg, maple syrup for the custard and berries for topping
  • Middle: yogurt, egg, mashed strawberries for the custard and drizzled with peanut butter once baked
  • Bottom: yogurt, egg, grated carrots, finely chopped broccoli, cheese for the custard

Sweet custard yogurt toast

To the yogurt and egg mixture try adding,

Favorite toppings

  • Fresh fruit – strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mangoes, banana, apples, pineapple
  • Jam – try this no added sugar strawberry jam!
  • Chopped or ground nuts
  • Seeds – hemp seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds
  • Shredded coconut
  • Chocolate chips
  • Granola (try this no added sugar granola)
  • A drizzle of honey or maple syrup
  • Powdered sugar

  • leave out the sweetener and add garlic powder, cumin, smoked paprika, curry powder, etc.

Toppings

Step-by-Step Instructions

A four image collage showing how to make the custard yogurt toast.
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, egg, and any additional add-ins of choice until smooth.
  2. Place bread slices on a lined baking sheet. Using your hand or the back of a spoon, make a dent in the center of each slice of bread. Be careful not to tear and leave about 1/2 inch on all sides.
  3. Spoon the custard filling on top and add toppings of your choice.
  4. Bake in the regular oven or the toaster oven until the custard the sets and the bread gets nice and toasty, about 10 minutes.

Tips for Success

  • What I like to do is divide the custard mixture into three and add different toppings to each as shown here. It doesn’t take much effort and it’s always fun to try them all with my kids.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper or baking mat for easy removal and clean up
  • Cook in a preheated air fryer – I always bake in the oven as I don’t own one but I’ve heard it works well – at 350°F for 5 minutes.

Storage

Transfer any leftover toasts to a airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the over or air fryer until warm and toasty.

    What a versatile recipe! I made these for my 16-month old’s breakfast on the weekend for something different. I mixed natural peanut butter, mashed raspberries and bananas into the egg mixture. My bread slices are on the small side so I managed to get 4 out of this. I cooked for 13 min in my oven (never really cooked custard before, so wanted to be sure ;)).

    My little one loved it (and me too!)! Didn’t need any extra sweetener. Can’t wait to try a savory version, maybe with broccoli and cheese!
