Today I bring you a Christmas recipe, although coming a little late, deserves to be shared. I had stumbled in a few stuffed French toast recipes, but honestly I was so afraid they were to muck sickening and sweet that I never dared to try. Initially my idea was to use the portuguese eggs filling , but the dulce de leche is as equally indulgent option.
And here they are: as decandentes, delicious and sinful as they seem! Hey, not everything has to be healthy, right ?! What better way to start 2016?
Happy new year everyone!
1 Baguette (hard)
1 cup of milk
1/2 can of dulce de leche
2 cups of vegetable oil for frying
2 tbsp of White Sugar + 1 tbsp of Cinnamon (powder) for sprinkling
Cut the bread into slices about 5cm wide. With a small knife make a cut through the slice (as if making a sandwich) and with a spoon put some dulce de leche inside.
Fill all the slices and set aside.
In a bowl beat the eggs and stir in the milk. Set aside.
In another bowl put the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
Put the oil in the pan and let it warm up.
Pass the bread slices in the egg mixture with the milk and fry on both sides until golden brown.
Remove them from the oil, let it drain briefly on paper towels and then roll it on the cinnamon and sugar.
