French Toast

Impress the fam with this café style breakfast. And, it’s a great way of using up stale bread! The goodness of eggs and wholegrain bread will fuel your family for sport and weekend activities.

  1. Mix eggs, milk and cinnamon in a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Cut bread slices into triangles.
  3. Dip bread, one piece at a time, into egg mixture. Coat both sides well.
  4. Heat a little margarine or oil in a non-stick frypan over a medium heat.
  5. Put bread in pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden. You should be able to cook 2 or 3 pieces at a time depending on the size of your pan.
  6. Repeat with remaining slices of bread (add a little more of the margarine/oil if needed between batches).
  7. Serve French toast warm with fresh or tinned fruit and a spoon of yoghurt, or with sliced banana and runny honey. For a special treat, serve with sliced banana, lean bacon and a little maple syrup.
