Frenchly says that people make French breakfast because they don’t want to waste food. Also, please keep in mind that throwing bread away is a big no-no. (Bread is important in religion.) A lot of experts think that French toast comes from Rome in the past. A recipe like this can be found in the book of Apicius, which was written in the 5th century BC. When the Romans fried bread slices, they dipped them in milk (and sometimes eggs) and called it “Pan Dulcis.”

If you go back to the 1400s, you can find a similar recipe at the court of Henri V. The “lost bread” was very popular there. Still, the phrase “French Toast” didn’t show up in England until the middle of the 17th century. People who study food history think that “French” doesn’t even mean France. They think it refers to the Old Irish word “to French,” which means “to slice.”

That means “French toast” is really “sliced toast.”

The phrase may have come from Irish people who came to the United States and Canada. The word “French toast” was first used in 1871 in The Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink. But recipes that were very much the same were called “German toast,” “Spanish toast,” and “Egg toast.”

Here’s a different, and cooler idea. It’s possible that cooks called French toast “French” because it let them charge more for it. “In the United States, we’ve always admired French food, which we think is complex and delicious,” says Stephen Block, Editor-in-Chief of Kitchen Project. “I think that’s why this dish was named that.” It is just advertising. ‘Lost Bread’ could not have worked. The name got around because the dish was good and the method was simple.
