If you’re looking for a wonderful way to start your day, go grab your fork. Nov. 28 is National French Toast Day, an annual food holiday dedicated to delicious French toast.
While the origins of this particular holiday are unknown, French toast has been enjoyed for centuries. Traditionally made with bread and dunked in an egg, milk and extract flavoring mixture, the bread is then cooked in a skillet until the center is done and both sides are a beautiful golden brown hue. Then the bread is slathered with butter, syrup and/or topped with fruit. While French toast usually was served for breakfast, today’s French toast can be eaten any time of the day or night. Today's French toast can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner and topped with a slew of different toppings.
