Thick slices of bread, soaked in beaten eggs with milk and cinnamon, toasted in a frying pan, and served with butter and maple syrup.
- 4 eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
- 8 thick slices of 2-day-old bread, better if slightly stale
- Maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
- 1/4 cup Triple Sec
- Fresh berries
1 Beat eggs, milk, and cinnamon together. If using, add orange zest and/or Triple Sec. Whisk until well blended. Pour into a shallow bowl.
2 Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing bread to soak up some of the mixture. Melt some butter (or use vegetable oil) over a large skillet on medium high heat. Add as many slices of bread onto the skillet as will fit at a time. Fry until brown on both sides, flipping the bread when necessary.
3 Serve hot with butter, maple syrup, and if available, fresh berries.
