I see so many french toast recipes using breads that nobody ever really has in their kitchen, at least not on a regular basis. So, I made it a mission to make the best french toast recipe that works on regular old sandwich bread (you know the kind that you always have and never really know what to do with).
I’m using potato bread, but any type of bread works here. A good trick to avoid soggy french toast is to not allow the bread slice to fully be submerged in the mix. The dip should be a quick one, two, and you should allow any excess mix to drip off before placing the slice on the pan.
You also need to make sure that you have enough butter on your pan for each slice! That is the secret to perfectly golden french toast.
For extra crunchy french toast, cook the french toast until the edges are brown and allow to cool before serving.
