Make classic eggy bread, then try our sweetcorn french toast, banana bread pancakes and more easy brunch recipes.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 4 slices white bread (bloomer or cob work well)
  • 25g unsalted butter
  • bacon, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Whisk the eggs with a fork in a shallow bowl with some salt and pepper. Add the bread slices one at a time, submerging them in the eggs on both sides so they soak up some of the mixture.

  • STEP 2

    Heat half the butter in a non-stick frying pan until foaming. Swirl the butter around the base to coat the pan, then add two pieces of bread at a time. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Flip the slices and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side. Keep the bread warm while you repeat with the remaining butter and eggy bread slices. Serve with bacon, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms.
