What is French Toast? Well for most, French Toast is a battered bread product served with Maple Syrup and some compote on the side. In France, they call it Pain Perdu, or lost bread, where they use stale or unused ends of loaves to soak and pan fry in butter.
The seeds add crunch and flavor, evoking the seasoning of an everything bagel minus the onion and garlic. I’ve since been sprinkling the seed mix on everything — toast, sandwiches, flatbread brushed with butter and crisped on the Baking Steel.
