the origin of the term french toast comes from world war 1. The story goes like this: A french soldier was looting a house near the trenches. he found some eggs and several slices of bread, which he put in his pocket. As he was walking back to his post, a German patrol ambushed him. during the fracas, the soldier fell on his pocket, breaking the eggs on the bread, and then was promptly roasted by a flamethrower. A British patrol found his body, complete with "french toast" in his pocket. The name has stuck ever since.
Hey, did you see that French guy who attempted to light himself on fire in protest?
First you pre-heat your steam iron to the highest setting. Wisk 1 large egg in liquid measuring cup. Add 1 tsp of vanilla extract, and 2 Tbsp of bread crumbs. Tilt your head upwards and pour egg mixture into your mouth, but do not swallow. While maintaining you head in tilted position, hold pre-heated iron above your mouth and touch your tongue to the hot surface of the iron for at least 6 seconds. Cool off tongue with maple syrup and whipped cream, and viola, french toast.
