“TORRIJAS” are a common sight in a spanish home. Its made of a few days old bread soaked in milk and then fried. Its an all time tea time favourite and very easy to make. In Spain they are also a sight in the bakeries. Its best eaten hot with a lovely cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate. If you have some left over baguette do try this out and let your family enjoy a nice different treat.
