How to keep French Toast Warm

If you are like us and need to feed a whole lot of people, the best way that I have found to keep these warm, where they won’t get soggy, is in the oven. Turn the oven to Warm or set to 200º F, place a baking sheet inside the oven and as your french toast is cooked, place onto the baking sheet until you are ready to serve.
