Round Down Tips:
- An easy estimation for the amount of milk to add is to add about as much milk as there is egg in the bowl before you beat it, then beat and mix the egg and milk at the same time.
- Eggs will blend much better if allowed to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes prior to cracking.
- French toast was initially made as a way to reuse stale bread, so a better result will be obtained if the bread is stale.
- Use hard bread (a baguette or bakery bread) and soak it in the mixture to soften it before cooking it in the pan. Factory-made sliced bread may have a soggier result.
- Using stale raisin bread can eliminate the need for cinnamon and vanilla extract.
- For parties and special occasions, try using cookie cutters on the bread before soaking it in the mixture! The different shapes are ideal for party fun.
- Sprinkle sugar over the bread while it's in the pan before flipping it – this will create a crunchy layer of caramelized sugar.
- Any leftover mix can be used to make scrambled eggs.
- Don't fry the bread at full temperature or it will burn and still be raw from the inside. Try using medium heat.
- Sometimes, when making a large amount or to avoid soggy bread, it's easier to mix the egg mixture in a bowl then pour a bit in a round cake pan for easier dipping. Just set the bread in and flip.
