The trick is to soak the sandwiches ahead of time and cook them just before serving. Then, they puff up like a crusty souffle in the oven. They must be brought to the table just as they come from the oven, before they fall, for grand effect. Very tasty!

it tastes great! but I think 2 more slices of bread is needed with the egg and the 1/3 cup of milk, I didn't add the salt and I put 1 tsp of cinnamon in it because i love cinnamon but if your not a big cinnamon fan, i recommend 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, but it was really good, i had it with syrup and cherries!
