When my husband and I were first married, he asked me to make him some "French Toast" for breakfast. Now mind you, I did not know how to cook much less some fancy French dish! I told him I didn't know how to cook that dish but if I could find a recipe, I would try to make it. He looked at me like I was crazy! He proceeded to tell me what he was talking about and I finally realized what he wanted. He wanted EGG BREAD! Why, I never in my life heard anyone call Egg Bread "French Toast".
When I was a young girl, I always spent a lot of time with my maternal grandparents, Grandma and PawPaw Busch. Every morning for breakfast she made Egg Bread. Hers was the best. She fixed 5 pieces -- 2 pieces for PawPaw, 2 pieces for me and 1 piece for her. She ate hers plain with nothing on it. PawPaw sprinkled granulated sugar on his and poured his coffee in a saucer and drank from the saucer. Of course, being a kid, I had to have sugar on mine too -- and I still eat it that way.
Egg Bread is very easy to make. Just beat eggs in a bowl (1 egg makes 2 pieces), dip a piece of bread in the egg and pan fry (in an iron skillet of course).
This is Egg Bread sprinkled with sugar -- YUMMY FOR YOUR TUMMY!!! (and your hips too "grin")
Now here is Hubby's take on Grandma's Egg Bread.......Creamy peanut butter and syrup -- YUK! YUK! YUK!
