I'm new to cooking and have a question about french toast. Does anyone have any good advice? Any recipes? Or ideas?
Challah is the very best bread for french toast. I don't like it with any coating other than milk, egg, cinnamon, vanilla.Don't turn it more than once, let it really brown .Real maple syrup or good jam.
I second (third?) the challah suggestion, and I like to add a little almond extract to the liquid mixture as well.
If you're new, keep it simple to learn the process/technique. I use this recipe as a base: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ro...
I use Texas Toast bread although challah is actually better.... it's just super expensive at my grocery store.
my favorite french toast involves dipping strips of challah bread in egg-milk-vanilla bath and then coating with a mixture of corn flake crumbs or rice krispies - it gives it a really nice crunch
My favorite french toast is made with cinnamon babka.
I've also tried french toast dredged in cinnamon toast crunch cereal. It added a different texture.
