The word toast comes from the Latin Torrere Tostum - to scorch or burn. Toast was originally used as a method of preserving bread. Soldiers at war would be given scorched bread - almost like a cracker - to make sure that the bread was palatable and a source for nourishment while marching and dwelling from one place to another. Unlike the loaf-like breads that developed in Europe earlier breads were flat - similar to the traditional breads found in Macedonia Babylon Egypt and Judaea.As the leavening process was discovered and practiced around the 17th century loaf-like breads began to develop. Old breads were typically fried and are the likely origins of French Toast.Hamilton Beach has been a leader in the development of electric toasters in the United States.
