Thick slices of Italian bread soaked in a lemon-lime egg mixture and fried until golden brown.
2 tablespoons cream
2 tablespoons grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons lime rind
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 loaf Italian bread, cut into 1" slices
Butter for cooking
In medium bowl, whisk eggs. Stir in cream, pepper and grated rinds. Melt about 3 tablespoons butter in large skillet. Dip four bread slices into egg mixture and fry in hot butter until golden brown. Serve with a pat of butter on top of each, maple syrup and bacon. Serves 2 (2 slices each). If you want to make extra, it freezes well - place cooked toast on a cookie sheet in a single layer, freeze uncovered, and transfer to a gallon bag. Reheat in oven, microwave or toaster.
