Eggy Bread [aka French Toast]

This is such an amazing recipe to start your day with but it's also a fantastic gentle introduction to egg for your little one(s)- especially when its served with a drizzle of date syrup, a dollop of coconut yoghurt and a handful of blueberries!!! I, however, personally love the savoury option- loaded with smashed avocado and smoked salmon/ or crispy bacon. It makes me hungry even thinking about it...

BLW tip: my daughter loves it when I cut the bread into fun shapes with biscuit cutters. Stars and gingerbread men for Christmas breakfast?!

Serves 1 adult or 2 small children


1 egg, beaten

1 tbsp milk

1 tbsp olive oil

2 slices of country bread, cut thickly


Combine the egg and milk and pour into a shallow bowl or plate with a lip. Place the two pieces of bread on the plate and allow them to absorb the mixture. After 1 minute, turn and allow the other side of the bread to absorb the mixture- it will become very soggy.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a shallow frying pan and after 2 minutes of soaking add the bread to the hot pan. Cook for 1-2 minute or until golden brown. Carefully turn over the bread using a fish slice and continue to cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Remove and serve immediately.
