Pain Perdu (“Eggy Bread”)

 
Pain perdu (“Eggy bread”)

“This recipe is a delicious souvenir of my childhood. My mother was a simple cook who prepared unsophisticated, healthy and filling meals. Back then, food was better, healthier and fresher. For example we simply rinsed fresh spinach a few times then reduced it to a purée in a pan, chopped it up, then sprinkled over breadcrumbs, salt and pepper before serving. It was simple and delicious. If any left-over bread went stale, my mother made this recipe which we found delicious...” (Lia Kwint-Kruse)

“I have more and more guests who are gluten-intolerant, and I make this for them for breakfast. Neither buckwheat flour nor ground almonds contain gluten, and they do make the mixture more crumbly, so it is best served in a shallow dish. This is a delicious alternative to diet bread!” (Sylviane Tatin)

I would like to share with you one of my favourite recipes. YENN B&B tries to minimise its environmental footprint and to support fair trade. One of the ways we do this is by offering organic produce in our breakfasts and by using organic cleaning products. Added to this is the fact that Leuven is the world capital of bananas. I often tell this story to my guests who think I’m joking before realising that it’s true. (Nadine Gregoor)
