Now what this is, is a new take on French Toast. It is also a great breakfast for kids, because it is entertaining to make and it tastes great. The French called the original dish pain perdu (the lost bread) because the bread would become hard and stale.Then they would soak it in an egg and milk mixture; sauté it and it would be easier to eat. Because this is my version, I am calling it pain perdu de l’Aaron (Aaron’s lost bread).
1 1/4 cups milk
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
5 slices of bread
In a mixing bowl add the eggs, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt and whisk together. On a cutting board, use a circular cookie cutter and cut one circle out of each slice of bread. Use a knife and cut a radius out of each circle. Take one of the corners of the radii and roll it until you reach the other end of the radius. Stick a toothpick in the bottom so that they do not come apart. Dip these in your egg and milk mixture and get them well soaked.
Place your flowers on a baking pan in this position to resemble a bouquet. after doing this cut your crusts and roll the m out using a dough roller. Using a toothpick, stick the end of the crust on the tip of the tooth pick and then curl it around the toothpick. When you do this with 3 to 4 pieces of crust, dip into the egg mixture and bake for 20 minutes along with the bouquet.
When taking out of the oven stick your decorations in the bouquet and pour some syrup over to garnish.
