Expert Tips

  • For a richer flavor, use whole milk.
  • If you want to dry the bread slices before making French toast, place in single layer on baking rack. Let stand 2 hours or overnight to dry.
  • Top French toast with fresh berries such as raspberries, blueberries, strawberries or blackberries.
  • The key to making great French toast lies in bringing the griddle or skillet to the right temperature. Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat (375°F) for about 10 minutes before cooking.
