  French toast - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
French toast (also known as Fried Eggy Bread) is a popular breakfast main course in North America, parts of Europe, and Hong Kong.
French toast is made with bread (generally pre-sliced) and eggs; some common additions are milk, water, or orange juice to thin the eggs, sugar, and spices such as allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
French toast is usually served with the bread's crust, but it may be served without.

 French toast
French toast is made with bread (generally pre-sliced) and eggs ; some also prefer to add milk or orange juice and spices.
It has been said that the dish was renamed from "German toast" to "French toast" in the US during World War I, and it is likely that the latter term gained in popularity in that time, but the term "French toast" can be found in print in the US as early as 1871.
Recently (March 11, 2003), the name of French toast was changed again to "freedom toast" in the White House, the US Congress, and in a few US restaurants, this time due to anti-French sentiment stemming from France's refusal to vote for a war in Iraq.
