French toast is easy to make but there are tips that make for better French Toast.
- The goal for great French toast is to cook it until it is golden brown and crispy on the outside with a creamy, custard-like center.
- Make certain that the egg mixture has soaked through the bread and cook over medium-high heat.But don’t let the bread soak for so long that it falls apart when you try to move it.
- Super airy bread tends to fall apart. Choose bread with structure. Day-old bread works great.
- Use a whisk and beat the eggs well. The yolks and the whites should be well mixed.
- Cooking butter rather than oil lends flavor to your French toast. Butter burns more easily than does oil so cook at a little lower temperature and watch your butter that it does not burn. Wipe out any browned butter with a paper towel between batches.
