Step One: Prepare Ingredients

A basic dipping mixture for French toast usually includes milk, eggs, and cinnamon, but feel free to add any additional spices you like. Combine them in a shallow dish, stirring with a whisk.
Note: A sturdy bread is essential when making French toast. Bread sliced too thinly tends to get mushy and fall apart after soaking in the egg-mixture.
