It’s National French Toast Day!

French toast is the perfect way to start your day. Although it is typically made with bread, milk, and eggs, and then topped with delicious maple syrup, many delicious vegan variations of this classic breakfast can be found!

The exact origin of French toast is unknown, but recipes date back to the sixteenth century. Once upon a time, 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 whipping up a batch of delicious French Toast!
