Tips

  • Using brioche bread will add a lot of richness to your dish.
  • Avoid using thinly cut bread, as it may not have enough structure to hold the dipping. Also, they might bend as you hold them. So, use thick slices of bread.
  • It is best to use stale bread for the pumpkin toast. If you do not have stale bread, cut the slices and let them sit out overnight. This imparts a crispy texture to your bread by drying out any moisture. You can also slightly toast or bake the bread to dry it out.
  • Do not overdo or leave the bread in the batter for too long, lest they absorb excess moisture and turn soggy.
