I absolutely love making French Toast! I can eat French Toast for Breakfast, Lunch, or even Dinner. I can also have french toast as a snack or dessert with ice cream and berries.
For this recipe, I decided instead of making French Toast slices, I decided to make French Toast Sticks. They taste exactly the same, but I felt that I had more to consume with the sticks. Essentially, I took the bread and just cut the bread into stick form.
Just the smell of the butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract tickled my nostrils with anticipation of envisioning myself enjoying every bite. I loved dipping the French Toast Sticks in the maple syrup while taking my own sweet time to stay in the moment and enjoy every morsel.
And, I did exactly that, because it only took mere minutes, to dip the brioche breadsticks in the dipping mixture and put the dipped French Toast Sticks in the skillet. I only had to cook each side for a few minutes until golden brown. The smell of the spices and butter permeated throughout the kitchen.
I like to find out what other countries call the foods we eat in America. So, I did a little Google research. I found out that in the UK, they sometimes call French Toast, Eggy Bread, or Gypsy Bread. And, in France? It is called pain perdu-” lost bread.” How about Italy? According to Google: “The exact origin of French Toast was traced back to a cookbook written in fourth-century Rome, where it was called “pan dulcis.”
One more country, just for fun and knowledge? Let’s find out what Germany calls French Toast shall we? Google says: “Armer Ritter” which means poor knight because the dish is known to be cheap to make. No matter what name a country calls French Toast, we all will be able to say: Delicious! Enjoy Every Perfect Bite!
