  • About


  • 4 slices slightly stale white bread, crusts removed
  • 2 eggs, beaten with salt
  • milk


Soak the slices of bread in milk, then dip them in the beaten egg. Melt the fat in a large frying-pan and fry the bread slices until golden both sides. Very good for breakfast or supper. A sweet version uses sugar instead of salt; fry in butter or oil and serve sprinkled with sugar, when it is known as pain perdu.
