French toast, also known as eggy bread or omelet bread, has been a staple at breakfast and brunch. November 28 is National French Toast Day across the United States.
The base consists of eggs and milk whisked together. Bread is dipped into the mixture and fried until golden. Many people also add some sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon to the base.
