What can you do with Milk Bread, especially with the last few pieces that have gone a bit stale? Let me introduce you to the Hong Kong Style French Toast, which is a Chaa Chan Teng (casual-setting, uniquely Hong Kong breakfast/brunch/lunch/afternoon tea restaurant) staple.
Served alongside milk tea and a pad of butter, it’s one of those treats that will teleport me to the bustling streets of Hong Kong.

  3. Dip the bread into the egg mixture and coat all sides.
  4. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat and shallow fry one side of the bread sandwich until golden brown. Flip and cook all the other sides.
