Torrijas for Easter - Spain's Sweet "French" Toast

Easter season in Spain is no joke. Holy Week is spectacular, with traditional processions filling the streets and religious artwork and other displays seemingly on every corner. Another, less solemn tradition:  torrijas. Slices of stale bread are soaked in milk (or sweet wine, depending where you are), dipped in egg, fried in olive oil, and sprinkled with sugar or drizzled with honey. Though found year-round, torrijas are a MUST at Easter. Who are we to argue with tradition? Bring on the torrijas!
