Torrijas Saladas Con Ajo (Garlic "french" Toast)

Total Time
Prep 8 mins
Cook 10 mins

This recipe is from a book "Tapas" by Adrian Lissen. It's like a savory version of french toast, and is served as a tapa. Might seem strange, but it's very good! This is a translation from spanish, so hopefully it's correct.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with a few drops of very hot water.
  2. Add the minced garlic, salt, pepper and mix well.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan.
  4. Dip a bread slice in the egg mixture, covering both sides well.
  5. Fry the bread until golden brown on both sides.
  6. IMPORTANT: its necessary for the oil to be very hot so that the eggs cook immediately upon contact. Be careful to turn bread before the garlic burns.

Oh wow, did I love this! I cut the recipe down a bit to make just 2 slices. I used olive-rosemary foccacia for the bread and loved every bite. I'll definitely make this often. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8-Spain/Portugal.

YES! This is my new garlic bread recipe! Heh heh heh. Refreshingly different yet comfort food familiar at the same time. It is not too garlicky. I recommend a quick whisk between batches as the garlic settles. I felt the need to drain on paper towels but that created steam & killed off the nice crunchiness. :( Maybe just drain on cooling racks? Made for ZWT8 ~ Spain/Portugal ~ Chefs Gone Wild!
