This recipe yields to two medium servings.
2 slices of your favorite bread, broken into bite size pieces, crust removed.
3 large eggs, beaten
3 oz. of milk or plain soy milk
1/4 cup of your favorite shredded cheese (more if you are a cheese lover)
* may substitute Soy cheese for alternate
1/4 cup of chopped onion (optional)
1/4 cup of chopped green pepper (optional)
garlic powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste
How To Prepare Ingredients For Skillet
In a large mixing bowl, beat the three eggs with the three ounces of milk. Add the seasonings to this "wet" mixture. Then add the 2 slices of bread without the crust broken into pieces to the bowl, stir until all is wet and then add the chopped onion and the chopped green pepper. ( You can get more creative and add chopped mushrooms or little bits of ham if you like). Just remember, if the dry amounts of ingredients increase, and one additional egg well beaten to cover the amount.
Time To Fry
Heat up the skillet with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. On medium heat, add the mixture of ingredients together and watch to see when the edges bubble a little. The egg will appear white and everything will start sticking together. The wetter the bread the better it will stick. When the edges appear dry, it is time to flip over with a long spatula. You can press the spatula down on it to flatten it , making it easier to turn. The cooked side should be a nice golden brown. It won't be long till the other side is finished. Like a pancake, it can be slid onto the plate.
How To Serve
You can share this with dinner guests by cutting in half or in fourths. A hungry individual can eat the entire piece with a dab of sour cream or your favorite ranch, blue cheese dressing: kids may even like this with ketchup. It is also delicious by itself.
Alternatives to this Recipe
This can also be a breakfast treat! Instead of cheese, you can add raisins, blueberries, or raspberries to the egg and bread mixture and instead of garlic, salt and pepper, add cinnamon and vanilla flavoring to taste. This can be eaten like french toast. Serve with your favorite syrup, sprinkle with powder sugar or serve with cream cheese.
May you enjoy this wonderful side dish or breakfast/ snack treat any time of the day or with your next family and friends brunch or luncheon.
