Bacon and Pain Perdu
I bought some Hawaiian Sweet Bread aka Portuguese sweet bread. Last night I cut three thick slices and let get stale overnight. This morning I fried some bacon and made the egg dip using less sugar than usual. In the bacon fat I fried the soaked bread. This bread being along the lines of brioche really soaked up the mixture. I then cooked them on a medium heat which gave a nice crust on the outside and a creamy custard texture on the inside. This is so good I am adding it to my repertoire and weekend and holiday breakfasts that I some times indulge in. Tonight I am going to the Burns Dinner. I will report on that in the future.
