Day-old bread is great to use for French Toast because it’ll soak up more liquid and lead to a fluffier piece of french toast. The best bread to use will be the bread with a thicker cut, so your french toast doesn’t come out too soggy. Feel free to use day-old ciabatta, sourdough, or vegan brioche bread, as all of them are excellent choices.
