Method

Franco Persian Toast & Jam Breakfast is a community recipe submitted by Raha Lane and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • In a large bowl whisk eggs, half & half, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and rose water until fluffy. I'd use a stand-by electric mixer to make a quick fluffy batter.
  • Place a medium size non stick frying pan on medium-high heat. Brush melted butter to the surface of the pan. Dip each sour dough slice into batter and fry until edges are crispy, approximately 5 minutes.
  • Flip and keep frying for an additional 5 minutes. Place on individual plates and continue making the toasts. Serve warm and dust a little powdered sugar on top of each toast. Serve pomegranate, apricot, and tart plum jam in pretty jars.
  • For a more formal breakfast, you can fry bacon strips, crisped up and hot, on medium-high heat in any non stick skillet. Chilled summer fruit on pretty platters, and steaming coffee, tea or simply ice-chilled water mixed with fruit Sherbets. Really enjoyable and quick!
