  1. Whisk eggs, Parmesan cheese, milk, and black pepper in a shallow bowl until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Dip both sides of each slice of bread in the egg mixture and place in the skillet. Cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a warmed plate and dot with butter to serve.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute margarine for the butter if preferred.
  • I do not add salt to the mixture as Parmesan cheese is quite salty. However, it can be added if you wish for a saltier dish.
  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

My hubby made a face when I said I was going to make this. It was oddly good. The only thing I did different was increase the parmesan to 1/2 cup, because who doesn't love more cheese? We tri...

Great recipe - I'm addicted to these! I would suggest using one less egg because I was left with extra mixture at the end. Other than that, it's awesome.
