Perfect French Toast
My family loves French Toast and make it a lot, but sometimes it would come out soggy and custardy, especially when using thick white bread and then nobody liked it. However, I found the secret to perfectly crisp French Toast . . . day (or two) old baguettes! While they are too tough to eat plain, they are absolutely great for making French Toast. So hit that day old rack at your bakery and cook up a batch.
As for topping our French Toast, we're not big on maple syrup . . . I find it too sweet first thing in the morning. We usually go for some homemade jam or applesauce . . . but this weekend as a special treat, we tried a thin layer of Trader Joe's Cocoa Almond Spread (an almond version of Nutella). Yummy . . . and along with a yogurt topped fruit salad, it was still a healthy but special breakfast treat.
So what do you like on your French Toast?
