Growing up, I had never paid much attention to brioche bread (we had it here and there but it was not a staple in our family).
My first time falling in love with brioche (thanks to my daughter and her love of French Toast I now make this brioche French toast recipe for her often) was at my granmas 90th birthday, we went on a family trip and the restaurant had brioche french toast.
My daughter ordered the french toast, took a bite, and then put a big forkful of one of the brioche slices next to my mouth. The look on her face was one of amazement.
So of course, I took the bite, expecting nothing. I was so surprised! It was AMAZING.
Now we make brioche bread recipes all the time because you can never have too much brioche.
Can Brioche Be Frozen?
Yes, and it will usually last for up to six months in an air tight container and stored properly.
If you are making your brioche fresh, you will want to let them cool completely prior to freezing them.
There are so many ways that you can eat leftover brioche from slices to a brioche bun.
Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Grilled cheese is a treat for kids, but you can level this classic sandwich by using thick slices of brioche and adding ham or any other sandwich meat, raspberry jam, sautéed shallots, your favorite cheese (gruyere, gouda, Havarti, brie).
Add some mayonnaise on the outside of the bread or dip in a beaten egg and toast (make sure the egg is fully cooked) until golden brown perfection!
This makes for a great sandwich lunch or brunch item.
The soft texture of freshly baked goods like brioche is vastly superior to regular white bread.Don’t be worried about having to get freshly baked brioche, because day old, even three day old, is equally amazing.
Brioche Crouton Ideas: basil with grated parmesan, dried Italian seasoning tossed in butter, sauted in bacon drippings (grease) and fresh garlic,

If you are anything like my kids and I … we just pop them like candy.To Store: Be sure to seal in an air tight container. Will last up to 3 or 4 days.
We love to make crostinis for a quick, and easily uncomplicated breakfast or early meal. You can toast up slices of brioche french bread and toast it then top with your favorite breakfast items.
Just in case you did not know. A crostini in Italian is a little toast.
Top Your Crostini: creme fraiche and smoked salmon, cream cheese with purple onions and bacon, two slices of bacon and fried eggs drizzled with syrup, topped with cinnamon and sprinkled with sugar, creme fraiche topped with fresh fruit.
One slice is usually not enough we usually make 2 to 4 slices of brioche per person.
Cut the slices into smaller squares and you have perfect crackers. I top them just like I would melba toast.
