National French Toast Day!

What does this holiday celebrate?
This holiday celebrates a very popular breakfast called "French Toast." So on this special day remember to celebrate it by serving your favorite style of french toast for your family.

What is French Toast?
French toast (or "poor knights") (often known as eggy bread in most of the UK - the exception being Scotland and Northern Ireland, pain perdu in French, pain doré in French-speaking parts of Canada) is a popular breakfast food in North America and Europe. French toast is made with bread and eggs. Milk is commonly added. According to what is popular in local cuisine, many of the spices that are added to bread or egg dishes are included in cooking. This versatile dish is often topped with butter, fruit, syrup, or other items.

Origin of this Holiday
I wonder why the month of November was picked to celebrate this holiday and why the 28th day?? That's the question, but unfortunately...

our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate.
So have fun with it and celebrate it!

We found reference to this holiday on ECard Greeting Sites
It's French Toast Day! Go ahead and enjoy this yummy treat. Have more fun by sending our cute ecards to all your near and dear ones.

French Toast Preparation
Slices of bread are dipped in a beaten egg mixture. The slices of egg-coated bread are then placed on a frying pan or griddle prepared with a coat of butter, and cooked until both sides are browned and the egg has cooked through.

The cooked slices can be served with a variety of toppings, including jam, butter, peanut butter, Marmite, vegemite, maple syrup, fruit syrup, molasses, apple sauce, beans, beef, lard, whipped cream, fruit, tomato sauce, (when powdered sugar/sugar is not used), chocolate, sugar, yoghurt, powdered sugar, marmalade, bacon, duck fat (in Northern Ireland), treacle, cheese (often with ham), gravy or various nuts such as pecans.

1 egg for every 2 slices of bread
The goal is to get both sides of the French toast nicely browned, while making sure the center is cooked. Using excessive heat could scorch the outside of the toast while leaving the inside undercooked.

Food Holiday  Weird Holiday • United States Holiday

"French toast" can be found in print in the U.S. as early as 1871. The Oxford English Dictionary cites usages of "French toast" in English as early as 1660 (toasted bread with wine, orange juice, and sugar), and cites an egg-based recipe of the same name from 1882.

Also notably, French toast in France and Belgium (and the DRC) is called pain perdu (“lost bread”) since it is a way to reclaim stale, “lost,” bread: hard bread is softened by dipping in a mixture of milk and eggs, then fried.

According to research provided by the International House of Pancakes, French toast is not necessarily French in origin; it is likely that the recipe dates back to medieval times and may have been a logical “invention” by different peoples, akin to battering and frying any food. A similar dish, suppe dorate, was popular in England during the Middle Ages, although the English might have learned it from the French Normans, who had a dish called tostees dorees. However, according to IHOP, the first written mention of the dish comes from the court of Henry V of England (1413–1422). documentation_license
