Trader Joe’s SLICED FRENCH BRIOCHE BREAD


“Buttery, moist and perfectly French”

Wow is this heavenly stuff. One of those so good, you can’t stop eating it, things. FRENCH BRIOCHE bread is a big hit for Trader Joe’s, a best seller year round. Almost anytime I go to TJs if I glance around at customers carts on the check out line, its a pretty sure thing I will see a package, if not two, of this bread in a few carts. This Brioche is the real thing: “Made in France”, this sliced brioche is one of TJ’s most popular items for very good reason, its pretty amazing! Soft and eggy, slightly sweet, it comes in thick slices, about 1/2 inch thick.

If you know what a real bakery Challah bread tastes like, brioche is very similar, both are yeasted breads made with lots of eggs and butter. This bread is delicious as-is un-toasted of the bag, spread with some softened (French) butter. or cream cheese. It is fantastic, of course TOASTED up till it is a perfect, delicious golden brown. Butter, cinnamon and sugar? Cinnamon toast. This might be the most delicious toast you will ever have. TIP: Be careful when you toast this bread as it can go from Perfect to Burnt in just a few seconds. So keep an eye on it. I love it toasted, spread with soft French (or Irish) butter and served with scrambled eggs. It is amazing with cream cheese and smoked salmon, or any jam or marmalade, or basically anything at all. It makes the best sandwiches in the world. Heaven on a plate. AVOCADO BRIOCHE TOAST?! Oh yeah baby, I had some toasted this morning for breakfast with butter, avocado smashed up with lemon, salt and pepper and GDS hot sauce.

FRENCH TOAST – This as you may have read online naturally this bread makes THE most amazing French Toast. You must try this next time you make French toast. It will be moist and delicious and heavenly… A breakfast your family will beg you to make again and again. Its soft, so you may want to leave it out overnight to get a bit hard and stale to hold up better, but even if not, its great.

A package of the brioche is $4. In a bakery, a brioche bread like this would be at least $7, so for 4 bucks its as usual a real good deal chez Trader Joe’s. A package can be devoured easily, so I guess thats why I see folks buying it in often two at a time. I keep it in the freezer of course. It defrosts rapidly and stays super fresh in the freezer. TIP: If you want a thin slice of this, you can cut it easily a minute or two after you take it out of the freezer, when its still a bit stiff and frozen, its way easier to cut in half frozen (be careful of course.) If cut in half you get a nice thin slice. I find this good for some things, especially if you don’t want a super thick sandwich. Thin, the brioche makes the most amazing cucumber sandwiches! Or make open face Scandinavian style things with this (salmon, cream cheese, dill, lemon….)

A great product!
