Dutch Wentelteefjes (aka French Toast)


I don’t miss bread at all since going paleo; grown rather fond of my good ol’ eggs ‘n bacon for breakfast and salad or leftovers from yesterdays diner for lunch.

But what if it’s weekend, you might have some friends over for brunch, and you want to serve them something else than scrambled eggs and bacon?

Make this paleo version of this Dutch golden oldie: Wentelteefjes – aka French Toast.

Originally wentelteefjes were born out of the need to use up some old bread, but nevertheless considered a treat.

I used Against all Grain’s World Famous Sandwich Bread (trust me though when I say it is impossible to have leftovers of stale bread with this recipe – you just have to make one for the occasion ;-))
