Denny’s French Toast is a favorite French Toast of so many people. You can recreate the famous French Toast at home.
From Danny’s Donuts to Denny’s
In 1953, Harold Butler and a partner opened a donut stand and named it Danny’s Donuts. Butler made a promise: “To serve the best cup of coffee, make the best donuts, give the best service, offer the best value, and stay open 24 hours a day.” That one donut stand has been transformed into a restaurant chain with a slightly different name. There are now more than 1,700 Denny’s, and each one is dedicated to keeping Butler’s original promise. To read more about Denny’s, click here.

History of French Toast
Practically everyone who likes bread, milk, and eggs, loves French toast. But you may wonder how French toast came about. Contrary to what you might think, French toast was invented long before France existed as a country. This is not surprising as it was probably first created as a way to use up stale bread. The earliest reference to what we now call French toast dates way back to Roman times. If you would to learn more about the history of French toast, click here.
French Toast is Still a Great Way to Use up Old Bread
By old bread, I don’t mean bread that is too old! If you have moldy bread, you should just throw it out. Serve this French toast with a few pieces of fresh fruit – blueberries are perfect. If you like this recipe, here’s another delicious Denny’s breakfast treat that you can try.
