Wentelteefjes can be sweet, but they are tasty savory as well. Perfect for using up old bread, they make for an addictive Christmas breakfast.
Whisk the eggs, milk, cream, and mustard until foamy. Stir in the cheese, season with some salt and pepper, a little Tabasco, and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. Pour the egg mixture into a shallow bowl. You can prepare the egg mixture the night before and store it in the fridge overnight.
Place two slices of bread in the bowl—or as many you can fit, really—and let them soak for 1 to 2 minutes.
Over medium heat, melt a cube of butter in a nonstick skillet and cook the soaked bread for about 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Let drain on some paper towels while frying the remaining slices.
Sprinkle with cheese and serve with the green herb salad.
