Recipe Expert Tips

  • Bread: Use a thick sliced bread. This helps the egg soaked slices hold their shape.
  • Syrup: I wanted an extra special syrup for this recipe. You can use bottles pancake syrup also.
  • Leftovers: Leftover can be refrigerated and eaten within a couple of days.
  • Freezer friendly: You could also warp individual pieces in plastic wrap and freeze them for another day.
