What do you do with left over, day-old white breads?
I was faced with this dilemma, one fine Saturday morning. I don’t want the bread to go to waste but I’m tired of the usual breakfast toast that I do. For one, you could actually make a pudding or toast then crush it to make bread crumbs with left over bread. I usually do this with pandesal (pinoy’s popular version of bread buns).
Then I remembered I saw a recipe for strawberry french toast in one of my food magazines, Yummy. Sans strawberry jam, I decided to do my own version of the basic French toast one that’s a bit healthy, just to satisfy my sweet craving early in the morning.
Good thing, we have plenty of eggs stored in the fridge. All I need are eggs, evaporated milk, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. I whisked all this up and dunked the white bread (sliced diagonally) and toasted it in a hot skillet smeared with butter. Afterwards, while it’s still hot, I drizzled it with clover honey for sweetness. Voila! I have a nice French toast for breakfast served with hot coffee. 🙂
