Demi French Bread French Toast

Unsurprisingly, French toast has withstood the test of time as a go-to breakfast choice. Its flavor profile is hard to beat; with a delightfully eggy center and crisp, sweet, and buttery outer layer, French toast is a treat that never gets boring. Even during busy mornings, a few minutes of simple preparation can mean a delicious start to the day. With so many delicious toppings and side dish options, French toast can be customized to fit any taste!


What is your favorite bread? Long as you have thick bread, you can make all types of magic, but remember, some bread is softer than others, so you can’t let it sit in the mixture long, or you will have a soggy mess.

  • Brioche – classic for French toast
  • Challah
  • French Baguette
  • Demi French Bread – my favorite
  • Texas Toast
  • Thick Sandwich Bread
  • Sourdough Bread
  • Sara Lee Artesano

These loaves of bread have held wonderfully in the mixture and come out amazing every time.
