French Toast: a dialogue

Jen: French toast, french toast, everyone loves you. Why don't I?

French toast: I don't know, Jen. I'm bread dipped in egg yolk and cinnamon and fried on a pan. What's not to like?

Jen: I don't know, but for some reason I have a hard time with you.

French toast: I'm not that different from other bready breakfast foods. Why you gotta be hatin'?

Jen: Don't be so offended. I'm not sure why. I wish i could like you. I think i prefer the flatness and lightness of pancakes and you're kind of too thick and heavy for me. Yes, i think that's it. I feel like I'm eating a brick.

French toast: That's your own fault. Cut your bread thinner.

Jen: I know, but I can't. You should see me try to cut bread. But that is neither here nor there... the point is, I wish i could like you more. However, I have had stuffed french toast and i like that better.

French toast: yes, like cream cheese and fruit?

Jen: yeah, that sounds good to me. I'm a sucker for foods filled with stuff. Cream-filled donut? yes, please. And i am ashamed to admit it but I think i was the only person on the planet that liked stuffed-crust pizza.

French toast: Yes, that is gross. You're a freak.

Jen: I know. So perhaps i'll give you a try again down the road, one day.

French toast: Well, ok then. I guess I'll see you around, maybe.

Jen: Don't feel bad. I feel similar feelings toward waffles, aka high-maintenance pancakes.

To be honest, I have problems with all the bready breakfast foods. Not that I won't eat pancakes, waffles, french toast and the like, but I don't choose them often. I prefer cereal. Or fruit.

You might try using Sourdough bread, for some reason, it tastes so much better. I mix the eggs in a little milk & cinnamon and cook it in butter then eat it with syrup. Some like vanilla and powdered sugar, but then it's just dessert. Good luck.

I hear ya Jen. Not about french toast-- I love french toast. But I hate crepes, and waffles most of the time.

I love all breakfast foods, but only for dinner. In the morning it's gotta be cereal, but for dinner I absolutely love waffles, pancakes, French Toast - you name it!
