It’s been called a lot of things, but it wasn’t officially “French Toast” until 1660, according to Smithsonian. However, even then it wasn’t the French Toast we’ve come to enjoy today. It first hit the culinary scene around the fourth-century in a Roman cookbook attributed to Apicius. Its different iterations have included using stale bread, leaving out the eggs, leaving out the milk, soaking in wine, covering with honey and more.
Today, French Toast remains a favorite treat and not just for breakfast. In honor of National French Toast Day, we offer some scrumptious recipes.
