• 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar plus more for dusting
    • 1 cup ricotta cheese
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 12 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed
    • 2 Tablespoons butter or extra-virgin olive oil


Sift confectioners’ sugar into a small bowl.
Stir in ricotta cheese.
In a separate bowl, beat together 2 eggs with 1/2 cup milk.
Trim the crusts off 12 slices of sandwich bread.
Roll out the bread to flatten.
Add 1 Tablespoon of the sweetened ricotta cheese to each slice.
Fold and pinch the edges together. (They will seal during cooking.)
In a large skillet, heat 2 Tablespoons butter or extra-virgin olive over medium heat.
Dip the stuffed bread slices in the egg mixture and place in the skillet.  Work in small batches.
Cook (turning one time) about 3 minutes, until puffed and golden.
Dust with more confectioners’ sugar or top with syrup before serving.
