French Toast: original recipe for a delicious breakfast

French toasts are an American preparation, even if the name might suggest a French origin, and are eaten for breakfast or brunch. According to the original recipe, the slices of brioche bread are dipped in a mixture of eggs and milk, fried and, finally, served with fruit, jam or even Nutella.
