Why did my bread rip when I made my French toast?

If you soak your bread for too long, it will get soggy. This makes it prone to ripping or tearing.

Why is my French toast so dark?

If your French toast is very dark, you either used heat that was too high or cooked it for too long.

Is French toast French?

Not at all! This recipe gets it's name because it was meant to be called French's toast. However, its inventor was so bad with grammar that he neglected the apostrophe.
