Gilded Fried Bread in Butter or Rendered Fat

Page 253 recipe # 232 (Scappi)

Served at KWDS this was a vegetarian substitution and fried in butter

Get twenty beaten egg yolks, six ounces of finely grated bread, three-quarters of an ounce of cinnamon, three ounces of sugar, three ounces of rosewater and a little saffron, and mix all that together with very finely beaten herbs. get crustless fresh bread slices the thickness of a knife blade, dredge the slices in that mixture, fry them in butter or rendered fat and serve them hot with sugar and cinnamon over them and splashed with rosewater.

4 eggs
1 Tbsp Rosewater
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Mixed herbs
1/3 c bread crumbs
4 slices of bread
Butter for frying
Cinnamon sugar mix

Beat the eggs with a fod
Add the rosewater, sugar, herbs, and bread crumbs
Beat until well mixed
Heat a pan with butter
Dredge each slice individually, spreading it on if necessary 
Fry in the butter until golden brown on both sides
Serve sprinkled with cinnamon sugar

Serves 4 people 1 slice each

This was a good quick recipe.

I see some fine tuning that can be done with it as the redaction has no cinnamon other than the sprinkle of cinnamon sugar at the end. The rosewater could be upped to keep the mixture from getting too thick to dredge in. I was able to dredge the first 2 1/2 pieces and then needed to spread the mixture for the last 1 1/2.
