I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. I prefer savory over sweet anytime. So when it comes to the usual French Toast, I steer clear of it. My version has the usual eggs and milk (normal not sweetened) but along with that I have also added a spice mix of cardamom, cinnamon, mace, star anise and pepper, a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and grated mozzarella cheese and NO sugar. Soak the bread in this mixture and bang it on a griddle that’s on low heat. A serving of fried sausages and you have your day made 🙂
By the way French Toast is not of French origin but way older. The earliest known reference to French toast is in the Apicius, a collection of Latin recipes dating to the 4th or 5th century; the recipe mentions soaking in milk, and sometimes with egg, and gives it no special name, just aliter dulcia “another sweet dish”. (source: Wikipedia).
There is obviously no alternative to the veggies. The eggetarians can lose the sausages
