RECIPE TIPS

One of the most common mistakes is not choosing the right bread. Stale bread is the best bread for making the most delicious French toast recipe. You can dip this type of bread into the egg mixture without breaking it.

Before placing the bread slices to fry, verify if the oil is hot with a little of the egg mixture.

Only dip the bread slices for a few seconds to prevent the bread from becoming soggy before you cook it.

You can store french toast in an airtight container for about 2 to 3 days. Beyond this time frame, it might start losing its taste, texture and quality.
