What is French toast?

French toast is a sweet breakfast dish made with sliced bread soaked in a simple custard mixture that's pan-fried.

Does French toast come from France?

Nope. It's a North American invention. The popular story is that Joseph French created the dish in 1724. He intended to advertise it as French's toast, but his grammar was so terrible, he didn't add the apostrophe.

Why did my bread fall apart?

It can be tempting to soak your bread for a long period of time to get more of that eggy goodness, but if you do, the bread will simply get soggy and break apart.

    1. I would not suggest cooking after freezing it. However, I have cooked it first and then put it in the freezer. To prepare it at a later time, just pop it into a toaster oven or air fryer for a couple minutes.
