An interesting recipe with wine you can make at home: Torrijas with wine. It’s very simple to prepare. This recipe looks like a steak despite being traditionally eaten during Holy Week in Spain. Many people accompany it with a little vanilla ice cream.
This recipe has a high energy value through its main ingredients. The bread and wine give personality to taste. Be sure to try the experiment at home if you have 10 minutes of free time, it is very easy!
- 1 Bread
- 200 grams of sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 liter of red wine
- 2 eggs
- Olive oil
In a pan pour a liter of red wine with cinnamon, sugar and orange zest on the fire and boil the ingredients for about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, drain and reserve.
Now take the bread (preferably from the day before) and cut into slices. Place them in a large pan and soak them with the wine you cooked with other ingredients and reserved. Do not soak too long.
Then take the slices of bread soaked in wine. Soak them in beaten eggs. Fry in hot olive oil.
Remove from oil when the slices have browned. Wipe them on absorbent paper to remove excess grease.
Finally serve it with cinnamon and sugar.
With grilled bread, a sweet wine is ideal as a Jorge Ordonez N º 1 Seleccion Especial 2010, soft and harmonious. Or one of today’s two recommendations:
