You don't have to wait until your old loaf of bread is ready to throw away to make French toast; in fact, the best version is made with bread that's been roasted in the oven.
Oven-roasting bread helps to manage its moisture, resulting in an ideal texture that includes a fluffy interior and a crispy, toasted exterior.
To do so, preheat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and place your bread on the wire rack. Bake each side for eight minutes, then proceed with your usual French toast recipe.
Since the bread is responsible for French toast's foremost flavors, maintaining flavor and texture is crucial, which is why oven-roasted bread can be a game changer.
