I like to poke my bread with a fork so the egg mixture get inside the bread. When I fry it I cook it slow on medium heat and cover it. It takes a little longer this way but I like the consistency of the middle and the crispy goodness of the outside of the bread.

This was a happy late night discovery that my fiance loved! I will definitely repeat it – maybe with pumpkin spice or puree. He was nervous about the milk but the almond milk flavor is great. I want to try it with straight whole wheat bread but the boy loves his Trader Joe’s white whole wheat bread! With pure maple syrup – so good!
