Brunch is full of desserts masquerading as main dishes. Not that we're complaining — the more pancakes, waffles, and pastries, the better. But French toast may be our favorite DIY brunch staple. It's a lot more goof-proof than those pancakes that inevitably under- or over-cook, requires no special cooking equipment (we're looking at you, waffles), is easy to make ahead, and the perfect way to use day-old bread. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that it's totally delicious, either.
Of course, another reason we love French toast? There are endless delicious ways to make it at home. We've rounded up our favorite French toast recipes from around the web to ensure you'll win at brunch, no matter which way you slice it.
