You're Using the Wrong Bread for French Toast

Choosing the right bread is essential for perfect French toast. Here are the best options:

Brioche: Rich and buttery, it absorbs custard well and creates a tender, golden toast.

Challah: Eggy and slightly sweet, it holds up nicely during cooking.

Texas Toast: Thick and sturdy, it’s ideal for soaking and frying.

French Bread: Day-old baguette softens when soaked, remaining tender inside.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread: Adds extra flavor with spices and dried fruit.

Use day-old or slightly stale bread for the best results. Soak each slice well in the custard without over-saturating. Enjoy your delicious French toast!
