How To Make The Best French Toast

  1. Choose a good quality bread. My favorites for french toast are brioche and challah 
  2. Use stale/day old bread. This way the you have the least likelihood of French toast being soggy.
  3. Slice bread 3/4 inch to 1 inch thick. The best French toast has a crispy and creamy on the inside. Thick slices will help with getting the perfect texture.
  4. Don't allow the bread to soak for too long. Only dip the bread in the custard for a couple of seconds per side.

Picking the Right Apples

I like choosing a mixture of sweet and tart apples. Fuji and Honeycrip are my go to sweet apples and Pink Lady and Granny Smith for tart. Whichever apples you choose, always chose apples with a firm texture that will hold up to cooking without getting mushy.


How To Make Ahead

All of this recipe can be made ahead except for the French Toast of course. Follow the directions for the apple topping and the cheesecake filling. Allow the apples to cool completely. Cover each with plastic wrap or in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
