sweet bread french toast with ben & jerry's ice cream

In Big Island Hawaii (which is one of our favorite places to visit!), there's a thing called sweet bread french toast. Hawaii is known for their sweet bread, which is yummylicious. And you french toast them!! Sweet bread + eggs = awesome food. So we tried to recreate the dish so we can feel like we are in Hawaii. And we just found out that Ben & Jerry's Phish Food ice cream goes perfectly with the french toast. It's super high in calories, but hey, we deserve it once in a while, yea?


Eggs - 3 (beaten)
Cinnamon - 1 tsp

Hawaiian sweet rolls - 4-5 (cut in half so it's rectangle in shape)

Butter - 1 TBS

Ben & Jerry's Phish Food ice cream - however much you want

Powdered sugar - for dusting on top
Strawberries & raspberries 


  1. Cut the rolls in half to make rectangle shape.
  2. Beat eggs and mix cinnamon in.
  3. Take out the ice cream so it won't be too hard to scoop out.


  1. On a frying pan or grill, heat butter, 1/2 TBS at a time. 
  2. Soak the rolls in egg mixture. Make sure you cover all sides. 
  3. When the pan/grill is ready (you can test by splashing water on it and if it sizzles, it's ready!), fry one side for about 2 minutes. Using your spatula, check if it's nicely brown. Turn and fry for another 2-3 minutes. 


  1. On the french toast, dust powdered sugar and give a big scoop of ice cream on top. 
  2. Serve with berries if you want - it goes really well together. :)

  1. Is the ice cream just the flavor? I've never heard of Phish Food ice cream. I must be missing out! You throw calories out the window when you eat ice cream. Haha.
