Pain Perdu with Roasted Peaches

Pain Perdu, meaning "lost bread," is a French toast recipe. Much like Crème Brûlée Lost Bread, this dish is created with leftover, stale "lost" bread. Had it not been dipped in eggs and milk, then pan fried, the bread would have certainly been lost.


Crêpes are very versatile. Depending on the filling, they can be eaten as a dessert or a breakfast item. Stuffed with seafood or meat, they can even become an entrée.
