Gypsy Toast cooked over an open fire of twigs

A great way to use up old French bread.  Cut an old baguette into 1 inch roundels, about 9.  Soak in a mix of egg and milk beaten together - roughly 2 eggs/1/4 pint of milk.  Leave for approximately 20 mins, turning once, until all liquid absorbed.  Heat oil in frying pan and shallow fry until golden and slightly puffy - approx 2-3 mins on each side.  Serve 'salé' with bacon or 'sucré' with fruit compote eg apple and blackberry.  Creme fraiche and sugar optional.  Great with coffee for breakfast.

Of course this can also be done on your cooker in the kitchen.
