Recipe of torrijas for breakfast or snack - CasaEnChilches.com

La torrija is a traditional Lenten sweet that consists of a slice of bread (usually several days old) that is soaked in milk or wine and, after being coated in egg, is fried in a pan with oil; finally, aromatized, to taste, with various ingredients: cinnamon or some liquor, and sweetened with honey, syrup or sugar. It is a food of humble origin that soon saturates the diner and keeps him relieved from the need to try another dish of meat (food subject to abstinence in Lent).

La torrija aparece ya documentada en el siglo XV, citada por Juan del Encina: «miel y muchos huevos para hazer torrejas», al parecer como plato indicado para la recuperación de parturientas. Las primeras recetas se remontan al Libro de Cozina de Domingo Hernández de Maceras (1607) y Arte de cozina, pastelería, vizcochería y conservería de Francisco Martínez Motiño (1611).

Its association with Lent is perhaps due to the need to use bread, which, during the time when meat could not be eaten, was therefore less consumed, although families made the same amount.

As breakfast or snack is ideal as it provides energy.
