Flour Tortilla French Toast Recipe

Long on flour tortillas?  They are perfect for a french toast breakfast or brunch, snack, or even dessert.  Many years ago I had no bread and wanted to make french toast for breakfast.  I quickly improvised and made this delicious version.  I haven't made them in years but decided to make them this morning to add to my blog.  They are simple enough, here's what you do.
For every 5 small tortillas the following quantities will work well.  To a flat bottomed bowl, add 2 Eggs, A Pinch of Salt, 2 Pinches of Sugar, 1/4 tsp Cinnamon, and 3 Tbl Milk.  Feel free to add a Splash of Orange Juice if you have if handy.  Figure on 2 Flour Tortillas per Person.  Fully heat a skillet on medium heat.  Add a 1/2 tsp of Crisco.  Do not use butter or it will burn.  Quickly coat both sides of a flour tortilla in the egg mixture and add it to the skillet.  Turn once it is golden brown and cook 2nd side.  Roll into thirds and top with Vermont Fancy Grade Syrup, Fresh Fruit and Toasted Nuts.  Serve immediately.  For Vermont Maple Syrup, call Therrien's Sugarhouse in Brattleboro, Vermont 802.257.4013.  Their prices are excellent!
