Ingredients (makes 4 sandwiches):
- two wheels of Woolly Rind, sliced into pads
- 8 slices of brioche, challah or other bread of choice
- 4 large eggs
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- berry compote or jam, to top
- maple syrup, to top
- powdered sugar, to top
Whisk together cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar in a shallow container. Add eggs, milk and vanilla and whisk everything together.
In a large skillet, start melting a tablespoon of butter. Dip two slices of bread into the egg mixture, turning to make sure both sides are saturated. Add to the hot skillet. Fry on one side for a couple of minutes until golden brown. Flip one slice over and top it with a few pads of Woolly Rind (be generous!). Top with the other slice making sure the cooked side is face down to create a sandwich. Continue to fry until golden brown on the bottom slice. Flip the whole sandwich over to fry the remaining side.
Once both sides are golden, remove from the pan. Repeat the process for each sandwich, adding a tablespoon of butter to the pan before you start each one. Top with your favorites like berry compote, maple syrup and powdered sugar and dig in!
