Florida French Toast

 

Many of us love French toast which is browned and crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. It is not dry and it is not soggy. It has a rich, custard flavor (without being too eggy). French toast was developed as a way to eat day old French bread – dry right?  Soak, brown in pan with butter, and then bake in oven to make crispy and puffy.  The type of bread will determine how many slices you have and how long it is baked. Small French bread slices require less time and more slices to satisfy the hunger.  Brioche is a French bread with a high egg and butter content.  It is perfect for French toast as it is nice and thick, and soaks in the perfect amount of egg. You can actually taste the richness of the bread when you bite into it. If you can’t find brioche, buy a challah (another egg bread).
