    I love using different bread for french toast! My favorite by far is a blue berry loaf bread hand sliced and dunked in a traditional french toast egg wash. I love your skills, and tools you decided to utilize in the kitchen, excellent taste.

    Wow, I can't believe I've only ever used sliced bread! big question though is slice thickness and also egg absorbtion. Like ensure the baguette is thoroughly soak in egg to its core or just a dip on each side?

    Thank you william. Yes baguette pieces are bit thicker so that makes the toast more spongy and soft. For them you must place one side in the batter, press lightly with your fingers and then turn the side and do the same. Let the batter drip for a few seconds. This makes the top slightly crunchy but the center is soft.
