How to make double dip french toast
- The first step is to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Then beat egg, sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon and half and half in a bowl. You can substitute cup of milk instead of half and half. Less milk will keep the bread from being overly soggy. You can even use some heavy cream for a richer creamy taste.
- Dip bread into the egg mixture and place onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Repeat step for each slice of bread. Then take to the oven and bake for 18 minutes cooking time. Remove from the oven and let it cool down completely.
- Finally dip again into the egg mixture. Use a shallow dish to make it easier to dip. We love using a pie plate to dip pieces because the angled edges work great for dipping!
- Transfer french toast to a hot pan or buttered skillet on medium heat. Cook bread slices until golden brown and crispy. You can use a hot griddle to cook a bunch of slices at the same time.
- Coat with sugar and cinnamon and serve.
Tip: You can use slightly stale bread for a crisper toast! What a great way to rescue older loafs of bread. If you’re wondering what type of bread to use, the best bread to use is ultimately a personal preference. Most people will use white bread, but you can also use wheat bread or even a gourmet bread.
