Preheat grill. Lightly beat the eggs and add the milk, breadcrumbs, herbs and seasonings, and mix well. Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a pan until it foams, then pour in the mixture.

    Ths is very similar to a recipe which was on the Healthy Wealthy and Wise TV show in the 1990's-in our household known as Healthy Wealthy & Wise Hotcakes, and I do them like drop pancakes rather than in one large frypan full.

    We spent over a year camping around the outback and I frequently cooked this on a campfire to use up stale campfire cooked bread.
