goodbye/fun facts....National French Toast Day...the thick, sweet or savory dish that’s become a staple of the American breakfast...Most experts agree that French toast dates back to ancient Rome....coming from the desire not to waste fact, the French do not call this French toast. It’s called “pain perdu,” or “lost bread,” because you're supposed to use stale bread to make it. Irish settlers traveling to the U.S. and Canada may have brought the term with them in 1871 even though they also called it "spanish toast" and "german toast"...french is what stuck.  how do you make the best french toast? Set your bread out the night before and let it go stale... Don't use too much dairy (it should be mostly egg with a splash of mile)....Add something sweet like a squeeze of orange juice or a little sugar. When the sugar caramelizes, it will add a crispy texture to the edges of your French toast....and only use medium high heat...high heat will burn the outside and leave the inside too mushy
