French Toast

French toast

Also known as ‘eggy bread’, ‘gipsy toast’ and even the 'poor knights of Windsor', French toast is probably the best thing since sliced bread. Originally invented as a way to use up slightly stale bread, it’s easy to make, delicious to eat and just what you need for a weekend breakfast.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Serves: 2



4 RSPCA Assured eggs

4 thick slices of  bread

Toppings of your choice (such as maple syrup, honey, caster sugar or ketchup)


Crack your eggs into a large flat bowl and whisk them well with a little salt. 

Lay your bread slices, one by one, into the mix and allow them to soak it up. If you’re using slightly stale bread, you should leave your slices in for a bit longer but don’t let the bread become so soggy that it falls apart.

Quickly transfer the slices to a hot frying pan with a little oil in. Cook for about two minutes each side or until they start to brown.  

Serve hot with a topping of your choice: maple syrup, honey, a sprinkling of caster sugar or even a splodge of ketchup.
