I refused to leave the store without getting a loaf of bread to make perfect, homemade french toast.
About two Sundays ago, I prepared an impromptu brunch for myself which included scrambled eggs, toast, bacon, and homemade cinnamon french toast. Of course, the key to good french toast is the right bread.
A sales associate at my local Meijer grocery store sold me sourdough bread, guaranteeing that it would hold up well for french toast because of its stiffness. She was right! I left the bread out a few hours before making the french toast, and then assembled the rest of the ingredients. Sidenote: for this french toast recipe i didn’t measure anything. I literally eyeballed it. I added eggs, whole milk, butter milk, and lots of cinnamon. The result? Deliciousness on a plate!
Pick up some sourdough bread and treat yourself to a nice brunch!
P.S. — don’t forget the mimosa!
