What to Serve with French Toast
This classic sweet breakfast is delicious all on its own. However, you can pair it with any of your favorite savory breakfast items for an even heartier start to the day. Some great ideas include:
- You can purchase mango puree if you like to save time.
- Only soak your bread for about 5 seconds. You don't want it to get too soggy and fall apart.
- Medium-low to medium heat is the sweet spot for fully cooked French toast that's golden on the outside and not burned.
If you soak your bread for too long, it will get soggy. This makes it prone to ripping or tearing.
If your French toast is very dark, you either used heat that was too high or cooked it for too long.
Not at all! This recipe gets it's name because it was meant to be called French's toast. However, its inventor was so bad with grammar that he neglected the apostrophe.
