Poor knights can be used for breakfast, lunch, snack, an evening meal or dessert, with ice cream. It is a great way to use up dry bread or loaf.
4 dl milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 ts salt
8 slices of bread or loaf
6 tablespoons butter for frying
Whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, cardamom and salt. Cut bread or loaf into slices. Place the slices in a dish with some edges, pour on the egg mixture and let it soak into the slices.
Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat and fry the slices on both sides until they get a nice color. Serve with jam, maple syrup or as I have done here, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
