The other names of French toast are eggy bread, Bombay toast, German toast, gipsy toast, poor knights (of Windsor), or Torrija. The earlier name in French was aliter dulcia “another sweet dish where the recipe mentions soaking in milk. The French name is pain perdu or “lost bread as you are using stale or otherwise “lost” bread.
In egg and milk mixture, the slices of bread are dipped then fried on both the sides. The best bread for French toast is day-old bread, as the stale bread will soak up more egg mixture without falling apart. The cooked slices can be eaten sweet with sugar or jam, honey, fruit or maple syrup. In you prefer them savoury serve with ketchup.
