French toast is fantastic all by itself, but I say we can make it even better. It’s simple to make crispy-crackly French toast. It’s the usual drill with sliced bread dipped in milk, egg, vanilla, whatever you like. But now the crazy-great texture tricks come into play. After you’ve soaked your bread slices, dip them into something crispy—panko bread crumbs, or crushed nuts, cornflakes, or your favorite granola. Fry or bake the French toast the way you always do, but wait for that crispy crackly mouth-feel in every bite. Doesn’t get better for breakfast, lunch or dinner—why not?
