    Hi, I'm new here, but hope someone can help. My 88 yr. old mother was reminiscing about her German grandmother who used to make Snitters(sp?). It was made with bread and eggs and almost sounds like a French toast type recipe. She can't remember anything else, except how good it was. Does the name ring a bell with anyone? I'd appreciate any hints, I'd love to give Mom a memory of the past.

    Thanks,
    Karen

    Thorstens recipe also works as a savoury meal. In my family we would do the same, but add small cubes of ham or bacon to the eggs and of course leave out the cinnamon and sugar. It'd be served as 'Abendbrot' (Many families in Germany have the main meal (hot) at lunch time when the kids return from school, and just serve bread and sliced meats/cheese for dinner).
