If you're looking for something to do today then let's start your day off right with National French Toast Day!  That ought to get you going!  So, let's get right into celebrating National French Toast Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Well, breakfast is probably the most important meal of the day, and a lot of people will have eggs and toast for breakfast. You get your protein and you get your carbohydrates... but what do you think would happen if you combined those two ingredients into one food? People are going to freaking love it, and do you know why? It's quick, easy and you get to squirt some syrup all over it, for extra sweetness. It's a win-win situation and people are so happy about this creation that they need a holiday like today to show their appreciation.  But is French toast really a French creation? Well, it might be... but not how you're thinking! You see, there was a guy named Joseph French that owned a restaurant in a tavern just outside of Albany, New York in 1724. Now this is just one theory on how it got its name, but it's said that he Americanized this toast and named it after himself. Yeah, this toast was around way before him, but wasn't always the same recipe.

In fact, there's a mention of French toast in the Apicius, which dates back to the 4th or 5th century, but the first time an egg-based version of this toast made it to print was in 1870. And all this toast really is is bread, which is often let dry out overnight, that's dipped in an egg mixture and then pan-fried in butter until the eggs are completely cooked. Then you can drizzle any type of sugar you want on top.  But you already knew that, right?

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So, how can you celebrate today?  Head to a local restaurant, of course! Get there early and I'm sure they will be more than happy to serve you as much French toast as you desire. They will have more French toast ready for you faster than you can say, "More chocolate milk, please?" I mean, we're all groggy in the morning, right? So why not do as little work as possible and celebrate in style?  But if you feel like making your own, then I hope you let some bread dry out overnight... otherwise it will make for some floppy French toast. Of course there is a way around that: just lightly toast the bread. And you know how to finish off the recipe, but why don't you make things a little special and modify the recipe a bit? A lot of people will put cinnamon or milk in their egg mixture, but what do you think would happen if you used chocolate milk? That'd probably be pretty awesome, right?

But you know, you can go with a savory French toast too! In fact, go ahead and try this... Get your egg mixture all mixed up how you usually like it, but prepare a ham and cheese sandwich or a sausage and cheese sandwich, instead of just a piece of bread. But, if you do opt for the sausage, make sure that the patty is cooked first. Then just dip both sides of the sandwich in the egg mixture, cook it up and enjoy the warm, French-toasted sandwich with melty cheese! Yeah, you can still drizzle syrup over it if you want.  Have a great day and enjoy your breakfast... at any time of the day!
