Why is my French toast soggy?

Try not to go overboard with the milk. Too much of it can end up in soggy French toast. We suggest sticking to thick slices of bread as well to avoid ending up with soggy French toast.

What to put on French toast?

For this recipe, we drizzled our French toast with some syrup and powdered sugar. However, you can experiment with your toppings for some variety in your breakfast.
