Pain Perdu--literally "lost bread"--was traditionally a simple breakfast of day-old French bread dredged in beaten eggs and pan-fried in butter. Our lightened version is a 5-star hit. Many reviewers noted that they left out the wine in the sauce and it was still delicious. One person used frozen berries she had on hand and saved leftover sauce for topping frozen yogurt. All agree, this is one recipe to file away for special occasions and weekend brunches.
