How to make French Toast with Baileys:
To begin with, you must ccut the bread slices the day before or two days ago. It should have a crust so that it is firmer when moistened in milk and does not fall apart.
Put the milk to cook, add a cinnamon stick, chipping it to release its aroma, and add the Baileys and sugar or stevia. Stir to dissolve, let it heat up little by little, without letting it come to a boil. Heat for 5 minutes.
Then turn off the fire and let stand 5 minutes so that the cinnamon finishes releasing the flavor. After this time, strain the mixture through a strainer. Now, dip the bread slices in the milk and let them rest so that they soak up well.
Trick: Try not to make the milk cold, but not too hot either.
Heat a frying pan with oil and beat an egg (or two if necessary). Coat each slice of bread being very careful not to break them, and take the hot oil to fry and brown. You must be careful that the oil does not get too hot or it will burn the front face of the torrija.
Let brown for three minutes on each face and turn it over as many times as necessary.
Trick: fry the torrijas one by one or if there is space two by two.
Prepare a dish with absorbent paper to remove some of the oil. Finally, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon to taste. These Baileys French toast will be delicious both cold and freshly made, although you can keep them in the fridge for a couple of days.
