French toast is a classic breakfast staple, but it’s hard to find the perfect balance of moisture. Drying out your bread slices beforehand can keep the interior from getting too soggy.
French toast is a great way to use up stale bread, but a tried and true recipe from Cook’s Illustrated suggests baking your bread slices in the oven on a wire rack for eight minutes each side at 300°F. This prevents excess moisture in the bread while keeping the breads flavor. If you like planning ahead, you can even place some pieces on a wire rack and just let the pieces sit overnight.
