Glancing through my backlog of digests from when I was away at  
Pennsic, I saw a thread on breakfasts started by Katia.

Katia, first welcome to the SCA-Cooks list! Secondly, as Bear points  
out medieval breakfasts, when eaten at all, tended to vary a bit from  
what folks today would consider breakfast. However, there are a  
number of period recipes for foods which meet today's idea of  
breakfasts, even if they didn't tend to be eaten first thing in the  
morning.  A number of these have already been detailed in other  

You might also want to glance at this file in the FOOD section of the  
breakfast-msg     (88K) 12/14/03    What's for breakfast? SCA and  

<<< Much like a kettle of french toast but done in a cast iron pot  
would be not only doable but also very very easy for my volunteers to  
fix. >>>

I'm not sure how the cast iron pot comes in, since I thought French  
Toast tended to be grilled, but there are these two files in the FOOD- 
BREADS section of the Florilegium:
3-F-Toast-Rec-art  (8K)  8/17/03    "Period French Toast Recipes"
                                        by Lady Hauviette d’Anjou.
French-Toast-art  (27K)  3/31/00    "From Lost Bread to French Toast" by
                                        Christianna MacGrain.
French-Toast-msg  (21K) 11/14/04    Period French Toast. Recipes.

Of course since Maple syrup is a bit post period, I'd look for a  
different topping for these. :-)
