Which Bread Is Best For French Toast?
All loaves of bread are not created equal when it comes to French toast. A truly amazing French toast requires a special type of bread!
Here are some things to think about when selecting the perfect bread for French toast: Sturdiness. Whatever French toast recipe you use, the bread will be soaked in the milk-egg mixture. The bread you choose must be able to withstand soaking and pan frying without falling apart.
Always go for a thick slice of dense bread over finely sliced and airy slices. A little stale. Traditional French toast is made with day-old bread because it absorbs the custard-like mixture better than fresh bread. This is also an excellent way to use up stale bread and reduce food waste. So, which bread is ideal for French toast?
French toast tastes great on brioche. It is also tender while being thick, strong, and made with premium ingredients. It is a perfect complement to the rich custard made with eggs, sugar, vanilla, and milk despite being high in butter and eggs. Brioche is the most preferred bread for French toast for all of these and more reasons!
I like to make French toast with sourdough — check out my recipe. The tanginess of sourdough adds complexity to the overpowering sweetness of French toast. Sourdough bread has a flavor that is similar to stale bread, so it is an obvious choice. Furthermore, sourdough is one of the most durable breads available, so you won’t have to worry about it falling apart.
French Bread And Baguettes
Considering its compact form and sturdy crust, it should come as no surprise that the baguette is an ideal bread for making French toast. French bread is perfect for soaking because of its thick texture and crisp crust.
Nothing is worse than throwing away a perfectly good loaf of challah bread! This traditional Jewish bread possesses all of the qualities required for French toast: it is sturdy, delicious, and eggy. In addition, the braided loaf makes a lovely finished dish.
Which Oreos Are Best For Making Oreo French Toast?
Did you know there are more than 60 flavors of Oreos available? When making this simple French toast, there are many different flavors to pick from. You can pick whatever you want, but I chose Golden and Dark Oreos. You can either crush the Oreos or process them in a food processor to create fine crumbs, which you will use to coat the French toast, once you have chosen which Oreos to use.
The beauty of French toast is that it can be served with a wide variety of foods. Here are a few recommendations: Whipping cream A generous dollop of whipped cream on top of your French toast is always a good idea. The cream cheese. Instead of whipped cream, top your French toast with cream cheese or labneh for a light and creamy touch. Berries in season. Use whatever berries you want! Strawberries and raspberries are two of my favorite fruits. Melted chocolate or chocolate sauce You simply cannot go wrong with this addition.
4 stale slices of brioche bread (1 day old)
1/2 cup milk
Vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon
Seven Golden Oreos
Seven Dark Oreos
2 tbsp. of butter (Optional) To serve with: whipped cream, labneh, and fresh berries.
Use a slightly stale slice of bread — not crispy stale, just day-old stale bread.
Do not soak the bread for too long. When coating your bread, you want it to be a quick dunk rather than a long soak. This also depends on how stale your bread is — the longer it can soak without breaking, the longer it can soak without breaking!
Flip gently — When flipping your French toast, flip it as gently as you would pancakes.
Use a rolling pin, a zip-lock bag, a food processor, or any other method you prefer to crush your Oreos into coarse crumbs.
Crushed Golden and Dark Oreos should be divided between two bowls.
Beat the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl.
Slices of brioche bread are dipped in eggs, then the extra is dripped off.
Sprinkle crushed Oreos on both sides of the bread slices.
In a skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter.
For three minutes on each side, cook the French toast.
Warm French toast should be served with some fresh fruit on the side and a dollop of whipped cream or labneh.
