I don't think it's anything to do with being common.

My parents always called it French Toast, no idea why.

Eggy bread. Because it isn't toast by any strech of the imagination.

Eggy bread. French toast is an Americanism.

French toast - my maternal grandmother was American so my Mum's passed on a few of these.

French toast, didn't know it was also called eggy bread until I married dh.

how do you actually do eggybread?

Overmydeadbody Tue 02-Jun-09 20:47:19

dip slices of bread in beaten eggs, then fry in butter or oil. Season with salt or sugar depending if you want it sweet or savoury.

It's cooked bread though, so I guess that might be where the toast bit comes from?

French toast. Never heard of eggy bread.. I could figure it out though!! I had maple syrup on my French toast the other day. It was deelish.

MaggieBee Tue 02-Jun-09 20:50:36

I like gypsy toast though. I might rebrand it in my house!

Hmm,now maybe I am a bit weird,but I add a splash of milk to my eggs (a bit like with scrambled egg) and then soak in the bread,then fry.Am I a Poor Eggy Breadmaker,as well as a Pleb?
