What is the trick to French toast?

Here are some of the trick to making a great French toast

  • Allow bread to go stale.
  • Always let it sit the bread slices in the egg batter for a couple of hours. A couple of hours in the fridge is required. I chill it at least 8 hours, or overnight.
  • Use a crunchy topping.
  • Use Challah bread to make the only true French Toast, – crisp outside & soft inside
  • Cook it over medium high heat like stove and oven. Let it be golden brown on both sides on the stove before you put the baking sheet in the oven.
  • Try a variety of unusual toppings. Top your French toast with some fruit such as carmelized pears, carmelized peaches, banana, raspberries .
  • Just have fun!
