Is It Just Me...?
Once upon a time I used to get funny looks in cafes for requesting tomato sauce with my French toast. Now I don't even bother.
When I was growing up, French toast (or eggy bread, as it's sometimes known at our house) was a savoury food, served with bacon as a weekend lunch. It wasn't a bloody dessert, dusted with cinnamon sugar and drowned in maple syrup (and still, weirdly, served with bacon!) I understand the whole sweet/salty thing but it's gone WAY TOO FAR in favour of the sweet stuff.
My favourite brunch cafe meal -- ruined.
