#FoodHack: How to Make the Perfect French Toast

We can all agree that French toast is delicious.

Right, Celine Dion?

Walter White?

Aaaand Oprah.

That’s a solid group of supporters there.

The question is: How to make the perfect French toast? One of the keys to unlocking this mystery may surprise you…

Bake your bread on a wire rack at 300°F for about eight minutes a side, to reduce excess moisture in the center of the bread while adding a crispiness to the edge.

And if you follow the other particulars of this recipe, you might end up with something like this…

Now that looks perfect.

Right, Celine Dion?
