what makes that toast ''french''?
The earliest known reference to French toast is in the Apicius, a collection of Latin recipes dating to the 4th or 5th century; the recipe mentions soaking in milk, but not egg, and gives it no special name, just aliter dulcia"another sweet dish". There is a 14th-century German recipe under the name "Arme Ritter" "poor knights", a name also used in the Scandinavian languages.
In the 14th century, Taillevent presents a recipe for "tostées dorées".
There are 15th-century English recipes for "pain perdu" (French for "lost [or wasted] bread", suggesting that the dish is a use for bread which has gone stale).
Various versions of French toast under a variety of names—"suppe dorate", "soupys yn dorye", etc.—were prepared throughout Europe in the Middle Ages. They were sometimes served with game birds. An Austrian and Bavarian term is "Pavese", perhaps related to a kind of wooden shield or to zuppa pavese, both referring to Pavia, Italy.
Damm I miss the Tick Tock diner
I don't think that answers your question.
Tik Tok Diner french toast:
in France they just call it "toast"
My french toast I make at work with fresh fruit, English cream, and strawberry coulis
Can they not eat just lightly toasted bread with a little butter or jelly? I imagine they can not.
