Celebrate With Wonder National French Toast Day! Recipe and Giveaway - ends 12/14 US


National French Toast Day is November 28th, and we are celebrating it with fresh grilled French Toast made with Wonder Bread!

'French' Toast has been with us a long time.  It is said to have its roots all the way back to the days of the Romans where they would dip stale bread in milk and fry it.  It is also referred to as "poor knights pudding" as it was a simple and very inexpensive way for a knight on hard times to eat.  We may call it 'French' toast, but it is like 'French' fries - not really French at all.  In fact the French call it "pain perdu" which translates to "lost bread" since it was a save lost or stale bread.

Contrary to the ancient tradition of using stale bread, we like to use fresh bread to make our French toast.  Just as fresh bread is nice and soft, it just makes French toast like a sweet soft moist treat.  To make it into a delicacy, make it with fresh Wonder Bread.  Wonder Bread has always brought us the most softest and great tasting bread.  Enjoying Wonder Bread for our sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs is always a pleasure.


Wonder Bread sent me four packages of their super soft breads to help us celebrate National French Toast Day: their Classic White Bread; 100% Whole Wheat Bread; Classic Hot Dog Buns; and their Classic Hamburger Buns.  For our French toast we used the Classic White and Whole Wheat breads.


How to Make French Toast

Egg Mixture
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup milk

6 slices of bread (Wonder Bread is best)

In a bowl big enough to dip your bread in, mix together the eggs and milk.  Dip each slice of bread individually into the egg mixture.  Brown both sides in butter on a hot griddle.  Only dip enough bread at a time that will fit on the griddle.  Dip and grill until you have cooked all six slices.

Serve hot with maple syrup, jelly or jam, honey, apple sauce, golden syrup, or whatever suits your fancy.

You can add the following to the egg mixture for different flavors: dash of cinnamon to taste, dash of nutmeg to taste, and/or 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.  We have added all of these either separately or all together depending on our mood at the time.

Now for the toppings.  Most people just top their French toast with maple syrup.  Us, well we don't generally use pure maple syrup on French toast that often.  We have always liked to be creative with our toppings, but one thing that we always have on French toast is real melted butter.


How about strawberries and cream?  We just cut up some strawberries, sweetened them with a little sugar to taste, scooped how much we wanted on the French toast, and topped it off with fresh whipped cream.  How easy could that be?


Here we used our applesauce from our Thanksgiving dinner made with 100% Whole Wheat Wonder Bread.  Wonder's Whole Wheat is just as soft and delicious as their Classic White.  Apple sauce tastes great on French toast.  Just use your favorite.


Here is our favorite way of topping French toast - just plenty of melted butter and lots of powdered sugar.  As you can see the real butter is just oozing all over.  It mixes with the powered sugar like a kind of frosting.  Just like manna from heaven.


French Toast made with Wonder Bread is the perfect way to celebrate National French Toast Day.  In 1921, Indianapolis consumers were teased that “Wonder” was coming on May 21st. What arrived on that historic day was Wonder Bread—a product that would stir the nation’s imagination like no other and that, nearly a century later, continues to do so today.  Wonder Bread is one of the softest breads ever made - that's why it's ideal for your French Toast!




Would you like to enjoy French Toast made with Wonder Bread?  Here's your chance to win the same package of Wonder Bread that I received.  This giveaway will end on December 14. 2014 11:59pm PST and is open to US residents 18+ only.

  11. 1 1/2 cups well-shaken buttermilk
    4 large eggs
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    12 (1/2-inch-thick) slices challah (from a 1-pound loaf; not end slices)
    4 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

    Preheat oven to 200°F.

    Whisk together buttermilk, eggs, brown sugar, and salt in a bowl. Pour into a large 4-sided sheet pan, then add bread in 1 layer and soak thoroughly, (keep a close eye) turning occasionally, until bread has absorbed but is not falling apart

    estimated time, 20 minutes, based on your heat element.

    Heat 1 1/2 tablespoon butter in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until foam subsides. Transfer 4 bread slices with a slotted spatula to skillet and cook, turning once, until slightly puffed and golden brown, about 3 minutes total. Dont forget to add 1 1/2 tablespoon butter between batches.
