Have you been to IHop recently? If not, you are missing out on their delicious new Brioche French Toast menu.
My family and I recently went to IHop and I just had to try out their new Brioche French Toast. The hard part was deciding on which one I wanted to try.
The Brioche French Toast is available in Bananas Foster, Berry Berry and Peaches & Cream. I had a hard time picking out which one I wanted to try. They all looked and sounded so good.
I eventually opted for the Berry Berry because my daughter wanted to try it too and she loves all types of berries. I suggested she get one for her self but she wanted to go a different direction for her meal.
To make it even better I had my choice of other items to go along with my Brioche French Toast. I ordered scrambled eggs, bacon and hash browns. I don’t normally eat bacon. We don’t make it at home but occasionally when we eat out I’ll order it as a treat. We also ordered a side of IHop’s Onion Rings. I so love their Onion Rings!
What makes the Brioche French Toast different that other French Toast is how it’s prepared. IHop’s Brioche French Toast is made with thick brioche bread that has been dipped in a lightly sweetened vanilla batter and then grilled to a golden perfection. As if that wasn’t yummy enough they offer guests different toppings. To make it even better each serving is topped with whipped cream.
I loved the Brioche French Toast. I honestly could have had it without the berries and whipped cream too. On it’s own it was delicious. They should have had a “naked” Brioche French Toast option. I might have chose that one. I’m not saying the berries and whip cream were not delicious (they were!), I’m just saying that on it’s own the French Toast was just as delicious.
You can’t beat the price either. The Brioche French Toast, plus additional side dishes (such as eggs, bacon and/or sausage) range in price from $7.99 – $8.99 (at least that was the price in the NY restaurant we were at). You get A LOT of food for a nominal price. So much food that I couldn’t eat it all. Thankfully I have two growning teenagers and my hubby to help me finish what I was too full to eat. 🙂
My apologies for the photo quality. I was using my cellphone camera. I feel weird taking pictures in restaurants and stores with my big camera.
As you can see the Brioche Berry Berry French Toast came topped with big, plump and juicy strawberries and blueberries. It was also covered with a berry sauce, whipped cream and powdered sugar. I could have done without the whipped cream topping. Next time I’ll order it without the cream. My kids were more than happy to help eat the whipped cream for me.
I enjoyed the Brioche French Toast so much that I’m going to try experimenting with vanilla when I try to make French Toast at home. I know I can never make the French Toast the same way IHop does, but it would be tasty to try.
If you find yourself drooling right now why not head on over to your nearest IHop and try a Brioche French Toast meal out for yourself. HURRY! They are only here for a limited time.
