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.)

How To Make German Muenster French Toast

Melt butter in a skillet on medium heat.

In a small bowl, beat together eggs, milk and salt.

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.

Muenster cheese as the U.S. knows it is an American cheese. It does not exist here in Germany. The only Muenster cheese available here is the French kind, which is a soft cheese with a rind more like a brie. Also, I have never heard of any German putting cheese on french toast. In short, there is nothing genuinely German about this recipe.

Best French toast ever! Kind of a funny name - German French Toast - when you think about it. But melted cheese on good bread is so good. A little like a meat-free Monte Cristo sandwich.
