French toast, also known as “eggy bread” or “pain perdu” in French, is a classic breakfast dish made by soaking slices of bread in a mixture of beaten eggs, milk, and often flavored with cinnamon, vanilla extract, or other spices. The bread slices are then cooked on a griddle or frying pan until they are golden brown and slightly crispy on the outside, while remaining soft and custardy on the inside.

The process typically involves dipping bread slices into the egg and milk mixture, allowing them to absorb the liquid to create a rich and flavorful coating. Once coated, the slices are cooked over medium heat until both sides are golden and cooked through.

French toast can be served in various ways, often topped with powdered sugar, maple syrup, fresh fruits like berries or bananas, whipped cream, or even savory toppings like bacon or ham for a sweet and savory combination. It’s a versatile dish that can be customized to suit different tastes and preferences, making it a popular breakfast or brunch option in many households and restaurants around the world.
