Chef's Note
An ideal way to use slightly stale bread. It's best with thick slices of country-style bread.
Ingredients for 4 servings (8 slices)
- 8 slices of country bread
- 4 tbsp. melted butter
- 4 eggs
- 500-650 ml (2 - 2 1/2 cups) milk, depending on the thickness of the bread
- 4 tbsp. sugar
- 2-3 drops vanilla extract
  1. In a wide bowl, beat the egg with the milk. Add the sugar and vanilla; soak the slices of bread in this mixture for 1 minute; turn so that the bread soaks up the mixture well.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet; add the bread and brown on one side for a few minutes; turn and brown the other side.
  3. Transfer to a plate and keep warm in a low oven while you cook the other slices.
  4. Serve hot, on its own or with maple syrup.
