    My favorite french toast is this pain perdue recipe. Though I cook with 2" thick country loaf and my custard mix is a more standard 1/2 cup of cream : 1 egg ratio.

    Pachowder pointed me in the right direction. Ended up baking a breakfast strata. Self serve.

    Didn't read the whole thread so I'm sorry uf someone already posted this .

    My two favorite things to do with french toast is
    1) change up the spice...as in use something more then just cinnamon. Some successful things I have used are;
    Cinnamon, vanilla, coriander, dry ginger and allspice.
    2) garam masala
    3) cinnamon, chili powder and clove
    4) Chinese 5 spice

    The 2nd thing I like to do us "stuff" the life if bread before slicing and cooking. I use a pastry bag too fill the loaf and I have used many different. "Fillings" But some good ones are
    Cream cheese ..mix with fruit like apples or berries is good to.
    mascarpone cheese
    Chocolate
    Ice cream
    Smokes salmon
    meringue, coconut is a good one, add coco into the egg mix before cooking.

    Note freezing after stuffing us usually needed. I have done "personal" sized ones too, works great... Martens potato hotdog rolls come mind.

    Which brings me to the bread. brioche & jaula are great but I love to use potato bread or old stale vanilla (or other) sheet (or pound ) cake.
