Enjoy on weekdays too. Follow the instructions to prep ahead so you can enjoy french toast on busy weekdays too!
Use day-old bread. Which doesn't get mushy and soft when battered and cooked.
Can you make french toast without egg?
Yes, but you will need to replace the egg with another ingredient that will function the same. In french toast, egg creates the batter coating the outside of french toast. In this recipe, flax meal functions as an egg. When it is added to the liquid the flax releases a gel creating a texture much like egg. Chia seeds also work the same way and can be a substitute.
What bread is best for french toast?
Any type of bread works but depending on the type the end results may be different. When making french toast, you can choose a whole wheat loaf for more fiber or a simple french bread. Also, simple sandwich bread works well too in a pinch but is thinner and cooks up crisper. For best results, a thicker slice works best and day-old bread cooks up better than fresh bread which may be too soft for french toast.

Whether you have leftovers or make french toast ahead of time, here’s how to store it for the best results.
Refrigerator: Allow the cooked eggless toast to fully cool and then transfer to an airtight container or freezer bag. Store in the fridge for up to five days.
