One of the first versions of french toast has been traced back as far as the Roman Empire. The name “french toast” was first used in England as early as the 17th-century . The recipe were adapted in America by many early settlers. The French call this dish the “pain perdu,” which means “lost bread.” It was called the lost bread because the french people made French toast from stale bread in order to not make waste of bread that have been otherwise thrown out for trash.
