French Toast (Claire Thomson)

July 16, 2013

(serves 2 adults and 2 kids)

3 eggs
600ml milk
Half a loaf of bread (I used about 8 slices of a 2-day-old sourdough loaf)
Butter/olive oil to fry

Whisk the eggs and milk together in a wide, shallow container. If you want savoury toast, season the batter with salt and pepper. If sweet, grate some nutmeg and add a pinch or two of cinnamon, all spice and/or ginger into the batter. Or, if you’d rather, dust the toast with spices after it has been fried.

Slice the bread.

Heat the butter or olive oil in a frying pan until hot.

Quickly dip the bread slices in the batter, making sure they’re not in too long and getting over-soaked.

Fry on both sides until golden brown and crisp.
