Honestly, Ina's never steered us wrong before and her recipe is worth holding onto. A takeaway? Keep your finished slices in a warm oven before serving so everything comes to the table nice and hot.

This one sounds fancy, but hear us out: There's no flipping required for this casserole-like French toast. Just rip up bread and top it with an egg mixture similar to what you'd use for stovetop French toast. Add a cinnamon-y crumble and this will be your new go-to.

Pro tip: Take the time to dry out your bread before soaking it in the egg mixture and cooking the slices on the stovetop. It's a little extra effort that's 100% worth it.
