Louisiana pain perdu (French toast)

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Jan 16, 2007



Some of you who live in other parts of the country might know pain perdu as "French toast."
 
We got this recipe from the folks at Louisiana Cookin' magazine, who picked it up from the Old Castillo Bed & Breakfast, a gorgeous inn near Lafayette, Louisiana, in the heart of Cajun country.
 
It's real easy and tasty. Try it for breakfast (some of you northerners might be inclined to douse it with maple syrup) or as a quick little snack.
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 to 8 slices of day-old bread (not fresh)
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar, or to taste
Mix egg, vanilla and milk together thoroughly in a bowl. Quickly pass a slice of bread through mixture. Drop on hot grill (or skillet) for 1 minute then turn other side for 1 minute. Remove from grill. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve hot.
 
Makes 4 servings.
