"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Added: Tuesday, October 9, 2007


8 slices of bread
2 eggs
1/4 C milk or cream
2 TBSP honey
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 TBSP butter

In a medium bowl, beat together eggs, milk, honey, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.

In a griddle or frying pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat.

Dip both sides of the bread in the egg mixture and carefully transfer to the hot griddle. Brown on both sides and transfer to a warm plate while remaining slices cook. Serve hot.

***NOTE: the lower the cooking temp the better (just takes longer!) so that the honey does not burn.
