Who doesn’t love French toast? It is the classic breakfast indulgence, and a Sunday brunch must-have in my house. The real beauty of French toast is that while the base ingredients stay the same you can very easily make it to your own taste and serve it with your favorites - berries, compote, yogurt, maple syrup, whatever you fancy.
Its fame as ‘French Toast’ in particular comes from the French breakfast “pain perdu” meaning lost bread. It stems from their desire to not waste any food, so when your bread goes stale (as it does quickly in France as all their loaves of bread are baked to be eaten on the same day), you dip it in milk and eggs to bring some moisture back and then fry it. Voila, the perfect breakfast is created.
