In England, French toast is called poor knights of Windsor. The French call it pain perdu, which means lost bread, because it has a way of reviving French bread that becomes dry after a day or two.

Ingredients:

8 slices of white sandwich bread with crusts cut off (I use wheat bread)

Softened cream cheese or Nutella

Diced strawberries (optional)

2 eggs

3 Tbs. milk

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 Tbs. cinnamon

Butter to grease skillet

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Flatten each piece of bread with a rolling pin

2. Place about 1 1/2 tsp. of cream cheese or Nutella filling (and diced strawberries, if using) 1 inch from one end of bread in a strip.

3. Roll the piece of bread up tightly and repeat with other slices of bread.

4. In shallow bowl, whisk the eggs and milk until well blended.

5. In separate bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon.

6. Prepare and heat skillet on medium-high heat with 1 Tbs. butter. Dip each bread roll in egg mixture coating well and then place them in skillet seam side down. Brown on all sides. Add butter to pan as needed.

8. Add cooked rolls immediately from skillet to cinnamon-sugar and roll until completely coated with sugar.

Serve with fresh fruit or dip in warm syrup. Enjoy.
