french toastCathy Isom lets you know why you’ll need plenty of milk, eggs and bread to start your day today. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.

Celebrating National French Toast Day

Eggy bread, omelet bread or gypsy toast is more commonly known as French Toast. And every year November 28, people across the United States observe National French Toast Day. Whether enjoying from home or letting the professionals whip up this favorite breakfast treat, there are so many ways to get creative and add a personal touch.

The base consists of eggs and milk whisked together. Bread is dipped into the mixture and fried until golden. A touch of sugar, vanilla and cinnamon can also be added to the base. It’s also great to pair it with a squeeze of a fresh orange or stuffed with sauteed apples and cinnamon.

Make French toast kid friendly by cutting it into sticks that can be dipped into syrup and healthier by adding any fresh fruit for toppings. Nuts and seeds add crunch to this delicious breakfast fare, and don’t forget the whipped cream or powdered sugar.
