When I was a little girl, my mama always made this for me for breakfast. I loved it and fixed it for my children who also loved it. It always smelled so good frying that I could hardly wait to get it on my plate.

Hi Georgieanna, Growing up in Louisiana, this is exactly the way my Mama would make "Lost Bread". I'd forgotten all about it. Now I'm going to fix it for breakfast tomorrow morning. Thanks for reminding me with the recipe! By the way, I live nearby in Covington.
My husband and I tried this recipe for breakfast this morning. We often have leftover Hawaiian bread from communion each Sunday, so I used that for the bread. It really did not need syrup at all - but we used some! Yum!
Fantastic and easy!! I always have "lost bread," sometimes a little too much. Thanks so much for the recipe.
