These are cute little bread – cookies that are so simple to make and use the simplest ingredients.
1 loaf of sliced bread (White or Brown)
2 tsp Ginger
2 tsp Garlic
2 Tbsp Milk
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking
- Using a cookie cutter or a cup, cut out the center of the bread slices to get a cut out of bread without the hard brown exterior.
- Mix the ginger, garlic and salt in the milk to make a paste, and then beat the eggs in.
- Place the crumbs on a wide plate.
If you are like me, at this point you want to have an “assembly line” so that you work efficiently and your Breakies do not become too soggy or burn. So place the cut-outs of bread first, followed by the egg mixture then the bread crumbs.
4. Place some oil, enough to just shallow fry your bread, in a pan and heat it on medium.
5. Dip the cut-outs in the egg mixture (you may have to turn it over a few times) then coat with the bread crumbs on both sides. Place in the hot oil to cook on one side till golden brown, and then turn them over to cook on the other side. You can place several of these in the pan, hence the assembly line. Be careful not to leave the bread sitting in the egg mix for too long before you put it in the pan as they will become soggy and soak up a lot more oil.
6. Once done, place the now Breakies on a paper towel/serviette to drain. Serve hot.
You can pour on some maple syrup, honey or jam.
*Bread crumbs can be made from the scraps of the bread left behind once you cut out the centre. Just place the scraps on a baking tray and toast them in the oven till they are dry. You can also put them in a toaster and toast them till they are dry. Once dry, put them in a bag (khaki or plastic) and crush them using a rolling pin.
Egg-In- A- Hole is another Brunch recipe that will utilize those scraps though, so do not fret if you already had some bread crumbs.
