    French Toast: "Panama Limited" French Toast

    Source of Recipe

    This recipe comes from a 1941 edition of the Illinois Central Railroad Cookbook used in the dining cars of passenger trains.

    The Day Before:

    Prepare your favorite recipe of French Bread (or buy a loaf).

    The Next Morning:

    2 eggs
    1/2 C milk
    3 C shortening (for frying)
    Confectioners Sugar
    2 slices bread cut 1 1/2 inches thick, crusts trimmed (save for your favorite bread pudding or meat loaf recipe).
    Cut bread diagonally to form triangular shaped pieces.

    Beat eggs well, mix in the milk, and beat again. Dip bread slices in egg and milk mixture. (It is not necessary to soak the bread, although this maybe done according to preference.)

    Fry in hot shortening, using medium sized fry pan. Brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle liberally with confectioner's sugar. Serve hot.
