It’s been a fun Cajun adventure over the past few weeks. We’re wrapping up our Acadiana (Nova Scotia) > Louisiana > New Orleans trek with an all time favorite – pain perdu. Translated, pain perdu means “lost bread”; more commonly, it’s referred to as French toast. Regardless of its’ origin or name, the smell of freshly made pain perdu is one of the best things to wake up to – and is one of the easiest breakfast dishes to make.
Having mastered making low sodium French bread and stuffed ourselves on low sodium Cajun po’boy sandwiches, we barely had enough bread on hand to make this classic French/Acadian/New Orleans dish! Bon appétit!
