Prepare a delicious French breakfast?

Pain Perdu is a grandmother’s easy recipe. They used stale bread from the day before for the next morning.


  • Slices of bread
    • best option: stale baguette or farmhouse bread; otherwise any type of bread. In my opinion, avoid rye bread.
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup (25cl) milk
  • 1/3 of a cup  (75gr) sugar
    • best option: brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • optional: cinnamon gives a good taste…
  • Butter for your skillet


  1. Prepare 3 bowls -#1: milk – #2: beat eggs – # 3: sugar with cinnamon
  2. Dip each slice in bowl #1 and #2. Let the bread soaks up the mixture
  3. Throw the bread in a warm buttery skillet (medium high heat)
  4. Fry until brown, then flip the bread
  5. When hot, dip the slice of bread in the bowl #3, the sugar mixture
  6. Enjoy your Pain perdu!



For a nice presentation, you can display your toast in a pyramid.

If you cannot eat them all at once, you can keep them for a couple of days!
