Olá Cláudia,

Oh, I love food, the french toast I recognize but what is the rest? I can remember from childhood,I grew up in a multi cultural neighbourhood,a lovely Portuguse sausage sounded like linguisee. It was delicious. I know that is spelled wrong. Wish I could find some of that sausage now!

The countryside where you spent Christmas is beautiful.

Happy New Year xxx

Hi, Helmy!
I know what you mean. It's Linguiça! :-) And yes, it is good! :-)
Yes, they are similar to French toast. In the end you put sugar and cinnamon on top.
The first ones are called Coscorões. They are made with flour, eggs, sugar, butter, a bit of orange juice and a bit of Port Wine. Mix it all up and let it rest for a couple of hours. You then roll the dough out, cut it into triangles and then fry them in hot oil. When they're fried, put a mix of sugar and cinnamon on top.
The round ones are called Sonhos (Dreams). They are made with water, milk, butter, a pinch of salt and flour. You mix all of the ingredients except the flour in a pan until it boils. When it boils, you add the flour, mix it very well and let it cook for a couple of minutes until it forms a ball of dough. Turn off the cooker and let the dough cool a bit so you can touch it. Then add 3 or 4 eggs (depending on their size) and mix them very well. Then, use a spoon to take small amounts of dough and fry them in oil. Wait until they start growing and opening. Take them out when they're big, open and brownish. Put a mix of sugar and cinammon on top.
The last one is called Bola de Carne and is a kind of meat pie. :-)
Have a very Happy 2009, Helmy! May all your wishes come true!
