Today we celebrate, French toast, a dish made of bread soaked in eggs and milk, then fried. It can be topped with any combination of butter, cinnamon, powdered sugar, maple syrup and fresh fruits. In the United States, French toast was popularly served in railroad dining cars of the early and mid-20th century. While it’s considered, in many countries as a breakfast menu item in other countries it is traditionally consumed as dessert.
There are many recipes to this dish but forget about asking French people for insights on the best recipe as French toast is not french. In France, this dish is called “pain perdu,” meaning “lost bread.” People made French toast from stale bread in order to use of bread that would have been thrown away. Joseph French, an Albany, New York innkeeper served French toast to his guests around 1724 but forgot to add the apostrophe on the menu item description.
