November 28 is National French Toast Day
French Toast is bread soaked in an egg mixture and fried until golden brown. It can be traced back as far as the 4th or 5th century. Originally the bread for French toast was solely soaked in milk and the recipe was created as a way to use up old/stale bread.
Since then, there have been many different ways to make French toast. The egg mixture can be savory or sweet, the bread can be pan fried or deep fried and the bread itself can be stuffed for an added treat. I grew up knowing French toast to be a breakfast treat of pan fried bread, soaked in a combination of egg, milk, cinnamon and vanilla.
I will admit on occasion I have made French toast as a way to use up old bread. But for the most part, I specifically buy extra bread, just so I can make French toast. So whether you have old bread laying around or you go out and buy a fresh loaf, I hope you join me in celebrating National French toast day by making one of the recipes below:
