Sunday Brunch: Torrejas
Torrejas can be described as spiked Spanish French toast for grown-ups, or, as Mario Batali describes it, French toast meets bruschetta meets red wine written by Cervantes somewhere in La Mancha.
I've adapted this recipe from Spain: A Culinary Road Trip, the companion book to Gwyneth Paltrow, Mario Batali, and Mark Bittman's PBS series Spain, on the Road Again.
I guess what makes it quintessentially Spanish is the mosto, unfermented grape juice. I'll include the recipe from the book for mosto, but my guess is that warm maple syrup or reduced balsamic vinegar would be delicious as well. Just don't tell Mario or Mark I said that.
