After all, if a restaurant is known for "Everything you love about breakfast," then that's already a pretty good indication that any innovation that they debut is going to be extremely tasty, right?
Which is why I couldn't wait to visit IHOP and try their latest Brioche French Toast creations: Bananas Foster Brioche French Toast, Berry Berry Brioche French Toast and Peaches & Cream Brioche French Toast.
For 54 years, IHOP has served its world famous pancakes, 65 different signature, made-to-order breakfast options and a wide variety lunch and dinner items that are loved by people of all ages. As we have always found that IHOP does indeed offer its guests an affordable, everyday dining experience with warm and friendly service, we were excited to get to head over for a visit to experience their new Brioche French Toast.
We arrived hungry one sunny evening...
...and found that our mouths were watering for the tasty new french toast options even before we were in the door.
Once we stepped inside, all four of us were oohing and aahing over even more photos showing all three of the delicious varieties.
Who can pass these up?
These thick-cut slices of rich round brioche bread are soaked in a lightly-sweetened vanilla batter and grilled to a delicate warm golden crispiness that is perfectly ready to layer with any of the three flavorful toppings.
- Bananas Foster Brioche French Toast comes with a New Orleans Foster’s sauce made with sliced bananas, caramelized in a buttery brown sugar glaze, and whipped topping.
- Berry Berry Brioche French Toast layers blueberries and strawberry topping with a luscious dusting of powdered sugar and whipped topping.
- Peaches & Cream Brioche French Toast combines sweetened sliced peaches, honey-roasted pecans and vanilla cream drizzle with a dollop of whipped topping.
IHOP has made it easy for everyone to enjoy the new Brioche French Toast, as it can be ordered on its own, as a delicious indulgent treat, or as part of an IHOP Combo, with two eggs, optional choice of crispy bacon, pork sausage links or a grilled ham slice and golden hash browns.
While decision-making isn't exactly my forte, life was made easier when Big Sister E decided that she wanted to order the Bananas Foster Brioche French Toast as her meal.
Well, heck! In that case, I decided to have eggs, hash browns and the Berry Berry Brioche French Toast so that we could all try them both (unfortunately I couldn't talk Little Sister B into the Peaches & Cream Brioche French Toast to complete the trifecta).
I think most people would agree that French toast is traditionally a tasty meal, but wow. IHOP's new Brioche French Toast really takes the flavor to the next level. The bread itself has just the right amount of sweetness and, combined with the bananas foster or strawberries and blueberries just makes each mouthful a real treat.
It took quite a bit of convincing for Big Sister E to share even a bite or two, while, at the same time, Little Sister B took it upon herself to dig right into my plate of Berry Berry!
If you're looking for a fruity, delicious twist on breakfast, head over to IHOP to try out their new Brioche French Toast varieties today — they really are tasty for any meal of the day and have the ability to send the whole family home with big smiles and full bellies!
