IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

We had French toast for breakfast this morning and my son could not stop eating them declaring that they were the best he ever had. Mind you, I have not changed a thing to them, expect forgetting to spread some butter over when done. He asked to write a blog about it. So here I am with a breakfast dish.

Growing up in France we do have our own version of French toast: “Pain Perdu”. Great after school snack.

Simply slices of bread , whether milk bread or brioche soaked in vanilla milk, then soaked in beaten eggs and fried on butter previously clarified. We just eat it fresh off the griddle with no syrup or extra butter.
The below recipe is my own creation.
