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)
- 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.
