  • 1/2 cup peanut butter and/or jam
  • 8 slices thick white sandwich bread
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

For serving:

  • Butter golden syrup, or condensed milk for serving
  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • Maple or golden syrup


  • On half of the slices of bread, spread a thick layer of peanut butter or jam. Cover with the remaining slices to make a total of 4 sandwiches. Cut off the crusts.
  • In a wide bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, vanilla extract, and salt until well combined.
  • In a deep skillet, place the oil over medium heat. Once the skillet is thoroughly heated, coat one of the sandwiches in the beaten eggs, including the sides, but do not soak. Drip off the excess and place in the heated skillet. Fry on all sides until golden. Repeat with remaining sandwiches.
  • Serve immediately with butter, condensed milk, or maple/golden syrup.
