Wentelteefjes (poor knights)

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
8 slices Stale bread
4 ounces Sugar
10 fluid ounce Milk
2 ounces Butter
2 \N Eggs

Beat together the milk, eggs and the sugar in a soup plate. Melt a nut of the butter in a frying pan. Soak one piece of the bread in the egg and milk mixture and fry it golden in the butter turning once to brown the other side. Continue until bread and batter are all used up. Serve the poor knights immediately, sprinkled with more sugar.

SUGGESTIONS. Sprinkle the slices with cinnamon as well, or serve with a spoonful of jam. Syrup - either golden or maple - is also delicious with poor knights as are fresh strawberries and cream.
