Have you heard of torrejas?
Torrejas are a traditional dessert that is popular in Spain, Mexico, and other Latin American countries. They are similar to French toast in that they are made with slices of bread that are soaked in a mixture of milk, eggs, and sugar, and then fried until they are crispy and golden brown.
However, torrejas are often flavored with additional ingredients, such as cinnamon or orange zest, and they are typically served with a sweet syrup or honey. In some regions, torrejas are also served as a savory dish, with cheese and herbs instead of sugar and spices.
Overall, torrejas are a delicious and versatile dish that can be enjoyed as a breakfast, dessert or a main course, depending on how they are prepared.
In this recipe, we’re going to present a low-carb, perfectly keto version of torrejas Yucatan-style using Sonora Keto Bolillos mix for the French Bread. These will use more spices and definitely will present a different flavor profile from regular French toast, but we think you will love this decadently rich interpretation!
