German Mush Mush Recipe

My Mother in law Edeltraut taught her great grandson (my gbaby)  how to make Mush Mush.  

It is what her mother made for them as kids in Germany in the 1940s. 

Mush Mush Recipe

Break up white bread into a bowl (She measures it as 2 slices per person)
add an egg per person, pour milk into the bowl til mixture is moist, not soggy.
In a hot frying pan with melted butter place mixture.  Keep turning until until golden brown on all sides. .....then sprinkle sugar over it to taste.  
Optional: a teaspoon of cinnamon 

This reminds me of an early version of French toast as we know it now.

We love it and the kids have fond memories of making mush mush with Oma.

How special! I love old family traditions like that!
PS: As per the post on my girls' blog today ... yes! Maggie talks. A LOT. LOL. Cam does, too, but not as much. Maggie is always trying to entice Cam to play with her. She cracks us all up. :)

I love seeing your mother-in-law interacting with your grandson that way. So sweet...in more ways than one. :)

This sounds divine, I shall make it! I love french toast, and make it at least once a week. Plus I adore bread. Our last name is German, Phil's family are descended from German immigrants. The name Hartzler is a derivative or Hitzler.

What a great memory for the relatives of Oma..... That is special.

The mixture of white bread, egg, milk, and butter is a winner. Your german born mother-in-law knows what's good for her beloved grandson. And what a cute name: Mush mush!
