Savoury French toast

5 minutes to prepare Serves 4



A savory twist on the classic french toast. We added some flavorful savory ingredients to our batter. The result is a delicious breakfast or brunch dish, topped with a perfectly fried egg. 

Bread dipped in egg and fried is a winner any which way, and this is a little bit different from its sweet counterparts. I don’t see why we can’t have French toast for lunch instead of or including breakfast. It’s great having these in the freezer, too, for those days when you don’t have time to think about what to make for lunch. You can just pop them in the oven to reheat while you’re getting on with other things.

Here are ingredients for the 4-serving recipe:

100ml  milk
½ tablespoon salt
8 slices sliced white bread
4 slices cooked ham
4 slices mild cheese
30 g butter for frying

  1. Put the eggs into a shallow bowl, wide enough to take a slice of bread, and add the milk, salt. Mix well and leave to sit for 5 minutes
  2. Sandwich the slices of bread together with the ham and cheese. Dip them into the egg mixture and pop them on a plate
  3. Put a non-stick frying pan on the hob with some butter on the base
  4. Take one of the sandwiches and dip it back into the egg mixture to get another soaking, then fry on a medium heat for 3 minutes, until it has a golden-brown colour and the cheese begins to melt. Turnover and cook for another 3 minutes, pressing lightly with a spatula to help seal the bread, then pop the sandwich onto a plate lined with some kitchen paper
  5. Add some more butter to the base of the pan and repeat with the other sandwiches, dipping and frying in the same way. Depending how absorbent the bread is, you may find you have enough eggy mixture left to make another sandwich. Serve hot
