Fatias Douradas

When I was a kid these were a special treat that we got maybe 4 times a year.  They were the best!  My job was the cinnamon and sugar at the end.  I felt like such a helper :)  These are part of what I would consider my comfort food.  They are so easy and taste amazing.

Fatias Douradas

1 loaf of day old bread, sliced into 1-2 inch pieces (we used french because it's a good heavy bread that will hold the batter well)
2 cups of milk
10 eggs, whisked
1 Cup of sugar
1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
Vegetable Oil
all your ingredients ready to go!

Take the oil and fill a dutch oven with about 3-4 inches of oil.  Keep the oil nice and heat.  You can test to see if the oil is ready by putting a little bit of flour in and seeing if it starts to fry.
While the oil heats combine your sugar and cinnamon together in a deep plate (I use pie plates).  Place the beaten eggs in another one, and then the milk in another.  Set up the station to make it as easy as possible for you.

Here is our stations all set up

My cooking assistant tonight...he makes my apron look good :)

Once the oil is ready dip your bread in the milk on both sides, let it drip an excess off, then go to the eggs  and drench the slices in that.  let the excess drip off of it again.  

Then CAREFULLY place it into the oil.  Let it get nice and lightly golden brown on both side.  
Remove from oil and place into the cinnamon and sugar mixture and cover all sides.  

Place on platter that is covered with paper towels to catch any left over oil.

Hope you make them and enjoy them!
