French Toast

French Toast is a breakfast dish made by dipping bread into a milk-egg mixture, then frying it until golden brown on both sides. It’s usua served with syrup, jam or powdered sugar. In England, French toast is called “poor knights of Windsor.” The French call it “pain perdu” (lost bread) because it’s a way of reviving French bread, which becomes dry after only a day or two. 

What is Mimosa?

Consisting of finely chopped, hard-cooked egg yolk, it is sprinkled over salads and vegetables. Or mimosa is a cocktail of equal parts champagne and orange juice, served icy cold but not over ice. It’s a brunch favorite.
