Choosing bread is important too. The following seems to be optimal choice: 1. Sourdough 2. Challah 3. Schiacciata 4. Portuguese sweet bread ("Massa Suvada") this bread will take your french toast to new heights. 5. Whole-wheat raisin bread or schiacciata. 6. King's Hawaiian Sweet Bread 7. Panettone (bread with raisin, but may be too sweet for some) 8. Brioche (weaved bread) 9. Chinese bakery loaves of bread. Ask to get it cut thick or uncut. 10. Any bread you "pre-toast" yourself

I made French toast for breakfast this morning following this recipe and we looooooooooved it. One thing I should point out, make sure the bread slices are not too thick, to accentuate the taste the amazing vanilla flavor.
