French Toast

What better way to eat your toast than the French way?

In France, this dish is actually called "pain perdu", meaning "lost bread". Which absolutely makes sense, since you have to use bread that's a few days old. If you don't, you will find your bread falling apart after you've soaked it in the egg mixture. 

I love the soft and sweet feeling of French toast, and it's even better with some blueberry jam or sugar sprinkled on top. Or maybe try both?
