Tonight I'm home, another lady is covering and I really didn't want a supper I had to fuss over as Partner in Grime is working late. I thought I'd make one of Barkley's favorite treats. He didn't get maple syrup but sausage was usually involved.
I'm not sure how "French Toast" got its name as it's been around since the Middle Ages in a whole lot of places other than France (who call it "Pain Perdu"). Day old bread dipped in egg and milk and fried is something that translates to Yum" in any language. In Norway, where my Grandfather Gullikson is from, it is called “Arme Riddere”. This translates to “Poor Knights” and it is often topped with a bit of sugar and cinnamon before frying and then topped with fresh jam. It's also sometimes made with savory ingredients, such as ham or cheese, whatever is on hand. This makes it a dish the Norwegians would refer to as “restemat”, Norwegian for ‘leftovers’.
And I have leftover bacon!
