What You Need for The Perfect French Toast

You have all you need to make delicious filling french toast right in your kitchen. Eggs, bread, milk (you can even use any kind of milk or water) vanilla, and cinnamon if desired. Our family likes cinnamon in our pancakes, waffles so we also like it in our french toast, but just plan vanilla is perfect too. 

Any size egg works and any kind of milk. Any of the the nut milks or oat milks work also.

Best Bread for French Toast

  • You want to start with bread that will hold up to being soaked in the egg mixture. A thicker sturdy bread is best. Traditionally stale bread was used but that is not necessary.
  • A firm Italian.
  • Texas Toast.
  • Brioche.
  • Think Cinnamon Bread.
  • Challah bread.
  • I have made delicious French Toast with what every bread is in the house and it is eaten faster than I can make it. So do not think you have to buy special bread.

How to Make the Best French Toast

  1. Mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon and stir with a fork to mix well in a shallow bowl or pie plate.
  2. Heat a skillet on the stove to medium heat. Add olive oil, butter, or vegetable oil to coat the pan so the bread will not stick.
  3. With a fork gently soak each side of the bread with the egg mixture and put in your skillet or grille leaving an inch of room between each slice of bread.
  4. Cook the toast for about one and a half minutes on each side. Adjust your time for your size of the skillet and the temperature of the skillet. Check to see if the cooked side is golden brown.
  5. Top with the French toast and enjoy.
