how to make fried bread

To begin, we put abundant olive oil in a deep frying pan to fry and we take it to the fire. We wait for the oil to reach the optimal temperature to be able to fry the slices of bread and for this we will put a piece of bread in the oil. When it starts to brown, the oil is ready to start frying the slices of bread.
