This is one of the most popular recipes in American when ordering at a restaurant, in France, they serve it for dessert, which is called “Lost Bread” or Pain Perdu.
The French are mainly credited with creating French Toast, but upon further research, they really created it in Belgium.
Back in medieval times the soldiers would take the old bread and soak it in egg and milk, to make it edible.
Before preservatives in America and around the world, the bread did not say long; it was a great way to use up day-old bread.
This is also a great way to use your imagination, as everything goes with French Toast, berries, stuffed, etc..
Any type of bread works for French toast, you can use white bread, whole wheat, rye bread, French Bread, brioche, and croissants. A typical holiday breakfast would be for a French Bread Casserole, so I am hoping to make one in the coming weeks because it really makes for a wonderful breakfast on either Thanksgiving or Christmas mornings. I am working on making homemade French Toast Bites because my kids have fallen in love with the Frozen version.

Here are some tips for getting perfect French Toast every time:
- The perfect thickness of the bread you will use for your French Toast, the thickness should be between 1/2″ and 1″ thick.
- As mentioned above, you can use any type of bread, but the dried the bread the better, therefore day-old bread really works, it soaks up the liquid perfectly.
- All French toast batter includes eggs and milk, whole milk works best, as it is thicker.
- Remember to season the batter, so grab your favorite spice and mix it in.
Tips for Air Frying French Toast in the Air Fryer:
- Make sure that the entire piece of bread has liquid on it, AKA the batter.
- Spray the soaked bread with non-stick cooking spray. The more spray you put on the less it will stick.
- I use a pan, only because I can spray the pan, with non-stick cooking spray, this way, you put the soaked bread on top of a greased pan; it is easier to flip, and it does not stick to the air fryer basket.
- Don’t forget to use tongs to flip the French Toast, halfway through.
- I hardly preheat the oven but, for French Toast, I preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees F. (but check each recipe, as they are all different)
