French Toast

I toyed with blogging this, I thought that there would be no need to blog something as simple as this but then some of the tastiest things are simple and can be made in a minute or two so why not.

This is the second breakfast post, see the first here. The reason for this is that my Year 11's are doing a breakfast module and this week they are cooking something a little different from the usual cereal or toast.

The joy of french toast is that it can switch from sweet or savoury depending on your mood. Drown it in beans, throw a few rashers of bacon and some good sausages on there or do like I did and chop up a banana and sprinkle with icing sugar. simple yet tasty.

Few tips:
Buy cheap thick white bread, forget your artisan sourdoughs, you need the cheap stuff to soak up all the eggy goodness.
Buy good eggs though, free range or you could half inch them from a friendly collegue like I did.

2 Slices of thick white bread
2 eggs
Splash of milk

Beat the eggs in a bowl and soak the bread until nice and soggy.
Heat a frying pan with a little bit of butter, once sizzling add the egg soaked bread.
Cook for a minute or so on each side until it is done to your liking.

Cover with your toppings and enjoy.


  1. Never thought to use cheap bread in making french toast...but I guess it is the same as not using top shelf tequila when making a margarita, kind of a waste of good tequila! :) I like savory french toast!

  2. I like the sweet savoury version - bacon and maple syrup. A few minutes of extra effort can give you so much better than a bowl of cereal! Yum.

  3. hey... if you can't blog the easy fabulous stuff then whats the point of blogging... heaven on a plate if you ask me...!

  4. French toast is my absolute favourite. I also think that a food blog is not complete without a french toast feature. I also just want to share that I read somewhere that Korean milk bread makes the best french toast.
