BEST FRENCH TOAST RECIPE

I know this is a basic recipe for French toast but it is the best. I tried all different versions. Some with more milk, more eggs, less eggs, and this is the winning version. Make this your staple recipe for the weekend. 

WHAT KIND OF BREAD TO USE FOR FRENCH TOAST

The bread you use for French toast should be sturdy enough to handle a soaking in milk and eggs. Here are a few options.

  • BRIOCHE – Has a firm crust but a soft center.
  • SOURDOUGH – I love the contrast of this tangy bread to the sweet French toast.
  • FRENCH BREAD – This is a great  bread for soaking since it has a solid crust.
  • WHITE BREAD – This is what most of us have on hand and it works great. It’s usually not precut in very thick slices so don’t soak as long.
  • CHALLAH – Is a softer bread but also works great here.

HOW TO MAKE FRENCH TOAST

First, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow baking dish.

Dip your bread in the mixture for about 3 seconds per side.

If you’re making in batches, keep the toast warm on a pan in the oven at 250 degrees.

SOGGY FRENCH TOAST

If you have soggy French toast it means that you are letting the bread soak too long or are not cooking it long enough.french toast
