French Toast

This is a great, recipe to cook with children. They can learn how to crack eggs and cook a quick, nutritious meal using only a bowl and a shallow frying pan. French toast is also known as ‘eggy bread’ and can be served either sweet or savoury.

Favourite combinations to serve with French toast include:

  • berries, yogurt and a sprinkle of toasted seed
  • sliced banana and chocolate sauce
  • stewed apples and yogurt
  • sautéed mushrooms and avocados
  • crispy bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup
  • smoked salmon served with chopped dill and capers

Makes 2 slices


  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 2 tbsp Oat Drink
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 slices of bread (white or light rye)
  • unsalted butter (or vegetable oil)

To serve:

  • Greek-style yoghurt
  • 1 handful of fresh berries
  • maple syrup


Crack the eggs into a large bowl, then add the Oat Drink. Add the vanilla extract and cinnamon and whisk the eggs with a fork.

Soak the slices of bread in the egg mixture for a couple of minutes. Flip the bread over to make sure both sides of the bread are soaked with the egg mixture.

Melt a knob of butter in a hot frying pan, then add the bread. Cook for a few minutes until the bread is golden brown.

Use a spatula to flip the bread over and cook until golden brown on both sides. Serve with berries, a drizzle of maple syrup and a dollop of Greek yogurt.

NB. For a savoury version of this recipe, omit the vanilla extract and cinnamon. Instead season the egg mixture with salt and pepper and cook the eggy bread in vegetable oil if preferred.
