Pain perdu It is similar to a French toast. The French who arrived to Louisiana from Canada brought this recipe with them.
Whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, orange juice, and vanilla extract in a shallow bowl.
Dip the slices of bread into the milk and egg mixture so that the bread soaks up some of the mixture.
Heat a little butter on a skillet until it melts.
Fry the soaked bread pieces until golden on one side; about 2 minutes.
Turn the bread over and fry the other side until also golden, about 1-2 minutes more.
Place two slices of pain perdu on each plate with some sliced strawberries on top. Dust with confectioner’s sugar and serve.
