Think French Toast meets Little Havana meets Orange County. =D
It’s basically French toast stuffed with guava and cream cheese.
How fun is that?
It’s an original recipe I decided to call "Torrejas a lo Refugiado,"
"Torrejas" are a type of fried bread.
"Refugiado" is the Spanish word for "refugee." It is also the name given to guava and cream cheese pastry – guava representing our Cuban culture and the cream cheese representing our adopted home. It’s a uniquely Cuban American invention. I just took it up a notch. 😉
My recipe is posted over at Babalú today.
My (Cuban) brother-in-law insists that torrejas are a world class hangover cure.
I’m not sure about that, but I think I might need to add the following disclaimer…
