10 brunch spots to ring in National French Toast Day

Monday , November 2nd , 2015

Traditionally prepared with bread, milk and eggs, French toast can be garnished with sweet ingredients, such as fresh fruit, whipped cream and maple syrup, as well as savoury items, such as bacon. 

The classic dish also varies around the world, and is a delicious way to repurpose stale bread. In France, French toast is known as “pain perdu,” or lost bread, and is caramelized with sugar and a blowtorch. In England, the dish was originally referred to as “poor knight’s pudding” because of its simple and affordable ingredients.

Today, French toast is a morning meal mainstay that can be celebrated at any one of these reputed restaurants that serve breakfast or brunch.
