French Toast. My special occasion signature plate, generally served in bed. My secret French toast recipe, is brought out on a tray every anniversary, Mother’s Day, birthday, heck, I bring it if you’ve got a cold.
It is believed that French toast has its origins – you guessed it – in France when ‘pain perdu’ (lost bread) was revived into this now popular recipe. Eggs were added to return moisture to the stale bread and voila! Breakfast is served. We Brits have another, more literal term for the recipe, known as ‘The Poor Knights of Windsor’, which is a bit of a mouthful, but a delicious one at least.
