Today's Reason to Celebrate

November 28, 2014 is

National French Toast Day

It’s National French Toast Day! French toast is the perfect way to start or end your day. Although it is typically made with bread, milk, and eggs, and then topped with delicious maple syrup, many variations of this classic breakfast can be found around the world.

The origin of French toast is unknown, but recipes date back to the sixteenth century in Europe. Prior to the Hundred Years War, French toast was known in England as "poor knight's pudding" because it was a simple and inexpensive dish that a knight with no money could afford. In France, it was called "pan perdu" or lost bread, because it was a way of using lost or stale bread.

Celebrate French Toast Day by surprising your friends and family with breakfast for dinner!
