French toast: etymology?

Jeremy Osner | Mar 30, 2000 12:34 PM

Does anyone know where the name "french toast" comes from? Today I was eating a piece of the divine almond brioche from Ceci Cela, and had the thought, "This tastes exactly like really, really good french toast."
Which led to, "Oh, maybe that's why they call it 'french toast', because it tastes like brioche."
