Traditionally, French Toast was a way to turn bread that was going stale and an insufficient supply of eggs into a hearty, hot breakfast. My Dad's farm-derived recipe isn't sweet in itself. Sweetness comes from the syrup or jam on top. OR you might serve it with sausage gravy or milk gravy made from fried ham for a savory flavor instead. This recipe makes enough for a crowd or it can easily be cut down for a smaller group.
