8slicesfirm bread(preferably white/potato or challah, sliced ½-inch thick)
1½cupswhole milk
6egg yolks
3tablespoonslight brown sugar
2tablespoonsunsalted butter(melted)
1tablespoonvanilla extract
2tablespoonsunsalted butter(divided (for cooking))

Stale the bread by setting it out on a cooling rack uncovered overnight.
Whisk milk, egg yolks, sugar, melted butter, salt, and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Transfer milk mixture to 13x9-inch baking pan.
Working with 3 slices of bread at a time, dip into custard for 20 seconds. Using a spatula turn bread over and soak for another 20 seconds. (Bread should be saturated but not falling apart.) Transfer soaked bread to baking sheet or tray and continue until all bread is soaked.
Heat ½ tablespoon of butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat. When foaming subsides, use slotted spatula to transfer 2 slices soaked bread to skillet until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until second side is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes longer. Wipe out skillet with paper towels. Repeat cooking remaining bread, 2 pieces at a time, adding ½ tablespoon of butter for each batch.

Just ignore the dude. It's probably the sperg that has been going on about waffles and carbs for months.

Those don't look bad, but maybe try having the pan on a bit of a lower setting next time. Also, a cool technique if you want super fluffy and somewhat spongey french toast is to get thick slices, soak them for a really long time, like let it get 100% saturated, and cook it on the pan for a bit until you get the sides a little golden but the inside is still moist, then throw it in the oven at 350 for 5-10 minutes. It cooks it through and it essentially comes out as a cake. It's really interesting the way the ingredients cooking through turns the bread into cake.

So there's more than one of you? It's a scary thought that there are multiple faggot health pontificators and oddly specific dish haters on this board.

Also, idk if anyone has told you yet but nobody cares about your job. Start a blog. Or start a thread where kitchen people can whine about their existence on /qq/.

I mean, you're being a dick for sure, but OP did state that it was for eight slices of bread, so it makes sense that he needed 6 yolks.

You be your fat self, OP. Just don't also be a pedo food goblin

Tweak your values OP

  • 1 egg to two slices of bread. Thats too many eggs nigga, you should have had only 4 eggs there
  • For bread - see if you can get your hands on Brioche bread. Its sweet as is, you won't need sugar. Most French toast you get in cafes will be brioche. Its soft and spongey as heck.
  • Don't use butter in the mix. Use salted full fat butter in cooking. You do not need any added salt.
  • Use less milk too. Your toast shouldn't be sopping, just use a shallow bowl and dip each side of the bread into your egg/milk/vanilla mix. More milk = less eggy taste.
  • Low temp, do not burn the butter. Blast in oven when outside is fried at highest temp for a fluffy texture, as Rose suggested above.
-Real niggas top their French toast with cinnamon and golden syrup.

cinnamon is crucial for french toast and you're getting fancy with pricey vanilla what the fuck op do you even double dip??

jesus christ what are you DOING OP

first off, you only need 4 egg yolks for thick slices of bread.
second, you need to use Challah (jewish egg bead) or brioche.
third, you need to take out the fuggin brown sugar unless you dont use syrup
fourth, you need to add cinnamon, nutmeg, and a tiny pinch of powdered cloves
and fifth, turn the heat up a bit and use way more butter.

oh and sub out the whole milk for some heavy cream my nibba. what is this? amateur hour?

add a full banana into batter by using a blender
add a tiny bit of almond extract
add a tiny bit of bourbon to the batter for max flava

im the motherfuckin french toast expert and take pride in my works of art. dont stick them in the oven unless its super thick brioche, anything else is just going to toughen the outside and make it more like french bread in texture than a cake.

I must admit I'm wary about using brioche because that's already sugary eggy bread but yeah what the fuck is OP doing?

His recipe looks like the offspring of french toast and bread and butter pudding, looking at us through it's miserable warped face and begging to be killed like a poorly bred pug.

agreed but some people like to use it for stuffed french toast since the batter wont soak all the way through the brioche, making for a nice texture difference from the custard stuffing and the soft fluffy bread and it wont be overly rich.

but challah bread is the #1 thing to make it with imo, its just some areas dont seem to carry it so brioche is a decent alternative albeit too heavy imo.

LOLOL. French toast is great poor people food because it's simple. Got stale bread? Got eggs? Got vanilla extract and/or nutmeg? Got butter? Congrats, you can make something delicious. Even the dairy is fucking optional (though it's better with it, of course).

Yeah, OP is silly for writing out this recipe. But french toast is really hard to fuck up.

Your tips are fire, though. Definitely gonna try banana at some point.

>first off, you only need 4 egg yolks for thick slices of bread.
Also, WTF is this. You only use the yolks? Unless you're making whiskey sours with the whites, I can't abide.

damn right nigga its the best food to make when youre broke because 99% of the time you always have the damn ingrediants laying around.

but white bread dipped in whipped eggs and fried in margerine will never compare to some delicious challah dipped into some eggnog smelling shit with a hint of banana. it just makes such a huge difference making it properly, im very passionate about my damned french toast.

and yea, the yolk thing was a mistake. OP said yolks and it made me say yolks so now the whole fuckin world is gonna refer to eggs as yolks. tomato tomahto nigga

but yea try that banana shit, you make that for a girl in the morning with a side of bacon and she'll swoon like ur justin fuckin bieber to a 11 year old girl. trust.
