In french, "french toasts" is called "pain perdu". We cook pain perdu with stale bread and don't waste anything... We eat our pain perdu with icing sugar on top and that's it.

every time that food scientist pulls out that point thingie and it replays it like 26 times i think of when pewdiepie reviewed needlessly dramatic indian drama scenes where they keep replaying and zooming in on a single thing about 67 times to make it more dramatic but its just bad and I cry because its so threatening

When they added the toppings, and I thought the ketchup was bad and all the others were even greater monsters. Besides, my German soul refuse to call the stuff Emily white bread. "Proper" white bread is using a baguette dough ... not that white bread would be proper bread, it's more like too large kaiser rolls ;-)

Emily didn’t make French toast! Not sure what it’s called but it’s traditionally eaten in Hungary for breakfast. It’s salty, and usually deep fried in oil. It’s really good with ketchup :)

Ketchup on French Toast. Lord Jesus, I come before you just as I am. I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In your name I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give you my entire self, Lord Jesus now and forever. I invite you into my life, Jesus. I accept you as my Lord, God and Saviour. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit. Come, Lord Jesus, cover me with your precious blood, and fill me with your Holy Spirit. I Love You, Lord Jesus. I Praise You, Jesus. I Thank You, Jesus. I shall follow you every day of my life. Amen. Mary, mother of sorrows, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all you Angels and Saints, please help me. Amen.

Traumglanz 7 hours ago
1/4 tbsp of nutmeg? Are you for real? That's 4.5 ml of nutmeg. I am pretty sure you got this wrong. Did you mean maybe tee spoon instead? So about 1.5 ml? Nutmeg is so much more intense than cinnamon and you are still using the same amounts.

So, Penny, I bet you are proud of yourself for rising to the top of the competency-based dominance hierarchy within the predominantly male culinary field. Not to mention being evaluated by a _female_ Food Scientist. So much for that modern myth of a tyranical and oppressive Western Patriarchal Society holding you down! Eh? :D ...wait... ... you weren't born a male, were you? _jajajajajajaja_

Emily's didn't even have anything sweet in it, so it's just like someone putting ketchup on eggs. She just basically put ketchup on eggs bread, don't know why everyone's freaking out so much

9:27 I'll stop ya there... Stale bread coated in sweetened scrambled eggs is The Worst. If the custard hasn't saturated the bread... what is the point. There's nothing I hate more than paying $14 to bite into bread with egg coating.

Emily has made precisely what we call "Eggy bread" here in the UK, something kids over the country eat for breakfast regularly (especially with Tomato sauce!) - we don't eat sweet breakfasts over here like Americans do, so it just makes more sense!

I absolutely disagree with level 3's quick soak and the scientist's remarks. Wrong wrong wrong.
Jeffrey Walker
Jeffrey Walker 22 hours ago
Here are my thoughts before seeing scientist's review. 1. Don't like the idea of adding chocolate. French toast is decadent enough. 2. Chef 3; adding butter to a pan that is heated on high will burn unless you add an oil with a high smoke point. 3. Chef 3. ALWAYS SOAK FOR AWHILE. THE BIGGEST MISTAKE PEOPLE MAKE WITH FT IS NOT TO SOAK LONG ENOUGH. This chef is not worth her weight.
