Authentic French Toasts

Idea breakfast is a classic recipe, but uses authentic French bread.  The French toasts have a nicer texture instead of soggy.  I guarantee that you will never go back to sliced bread again.

One time when we visited my uncle in Rochester, NY, he took us to his favorite diner.  My husband ordered their authentic French toast which is exactly how they call it on the menu.  Since then, he loves the way how to serve this traditional dish. And we cook it at home at least once a month for any meal during the day.


CHEF NOTES

Because cooking this idea breakfast recipe so often, it gives me plenty of opportunities to try out different bakery bread.  Baguette is best for this dish.  However, some baguette is hard as a rock.  It is so hard that it even doesn’t absorb the custard.  

So, how to pick a perfect loaf of baguette?  It should be crispy, of course.  But when you put a little bit of pressure and squeeze it, it should be slightly soft and bounce back.  If it’s so hard that you can’t even squeeze it, I highly recommend you to walk away.

Regular French bread is definitely better than any pre-sliced bread.  But it still gets soggy easily. 

Throughout all these years, one of the best alternatives I discovered is the Target Market Pantry brand – Demi French Bread. 

It fulfills all the requirements I just talked about.  This bread is so good that you can put some spread on it to make a sandwich the night before and never gets soggy.  If you happen to have a Target close by you, give it a try.

Using Canola oil can help butter to reach at higher temperature without burning the butter.

Add ice-cream on top of the French toast and turn it to be a nice warm dessert.
