French Toast Restaurant Style

Check out How to Make French Toast Restaurant Style by Huang Kitchen on Snapguide.

P1120317 French toast, also known as eggy bread or gypsy toast is a dish of bread soaked in beaten egg batter, then fried and baked. As it is mostly bread, the kind of bread you use is important. Pick your favourite bread – White, Italian, French or Whole Wheat. Challah or egg bread will give incredibly creamy insides. Country- style breads are great too, and will give a sturdier, less creamy French toast. Classic French baguette sliced diagonally make a nice, chewy version. Do avoid using white sandwich bread and rustic breads with large holes and thick crust as the rustic bread can’t hold the egg mixture and white bread is too soft. Also day-old or slightly stale bread is preferred for this recipe.

Notes

Preferably to use day-old or slightly stale bread – soak up more egg mixture without falling apart.
Cut the bread into thick slices, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick – this helps to keep bread from becoming soggy while promoting a moist and creamy interior.
