When In Doubt, Fry In Butter

14 04 2015

It should be every Southern girl’s mantra really.

I’m not saying it’s the healthiest idea, but sometimes it’s just the right thing to do.  Everyone loves grilled cheese, pancakes, salmon croquettes, and scrambled eggs, right?  They all have one very delicious thing in common:  the greasy sizzle of a little butter in a pan.

But sometimes a little hot butter bath can come in handy when you have something that needs a little…  um, improvement, say.  Take, for example, the almond butter and strawberry jam sandwiches left over from a hike the day before.  When they were rediscovered this morning near the bottom of a crumby backpack, they were in rough shape.  But who wants to waste two whole sandwiches, especially when you aren’t headed to the grocery store until Wednesday?  AB&J French Toast to the rescue!  Just soak the hard, stale sandwiches in a little egg, milk and cinnamon mixture, then… well, fry in butter of course!  And a dipper cup of maple syrup doesn’t hurt.
