German Muenster French Toast

(4 servings)

  • 8 slices white bread
  • 8 slices Muenster cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
This recipe has received a few positive reviews since it was originally submitted in 2003. I tried it this morning and I'm sad to report that I didn't really get it (see important update below). I like both sweet and savory French toast recipes, but this dish couldn't decide what it was. I tried it with maple syrup. I tried it with mustard. Nothing worked. I found it to be a glorified open-face cheese sandwich and not a very good one at that. Muenster cheese is stringy when melted and that made it a pain in the butt to eat. If you do want to give it try, I'd recommend increasing the number of eggs to 3 and the milk to 3/4 cup if you want to soak 8 slices of bread. The only thing I really like about this recipe is that German Muenster French Toast sounds like Herman Munster French toast and I always liked the Munsters. For a better savory French toast experience, try Ham & Swiss Stuffed French Toast. (The recipe on this page was tested and photographed in February 2015.)

Update From Mr Breakfast

A couple weeks after I first tried this recipe, I tried it again but, this time, with smoked Gouda slices. It was much better and actually paired surprisingly good with maple syrup as a topping.

This dish is also known as 'Nur Auf Einer Seite Gerosteter Toast'.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Checkers for this recipe.
