French Toast Ingredients
French toast is a great food for kids – fast and super easy to make.
- 2 eggs

- 1 tbs tomato ketchup to serve – feel free to add our favourite sauce to dip your stars
How to make French Toast Stars
This is great if your looking for recipes to use up eggs.
- Whisk the eggs – crack the eggs in a small bowl or cup and whisk them with a fork.
- Get ready to dip the bread– carefully pour the beaten eggs onto a small plate – one that fits a slice of bread on it.
- Dip the bread – place a slice of bread into the beaten egg mixture – press it down slightly, the bread is like a sponge it will soak up the egg mixture.
- Turn the bread over – coat the other side in the egg mixture.
- Heat the oil in the pan – add a splash of olive oil to a non stick frying pan over a medium heat – once the oil is hot place the eggy bread into the pan to fry.
- Cook the eggy bread – cook for around 2 minutes on one side before flipping and cooking the other side – make sure both sides are lovely and golden brown.
- Soak up excess oil – once cooked place the eggy bred onto a slice of kitchen paper to soak up any excess oil.
- Cut out the stars – transfer to a chopping board and using the star shaped cookie cutter cut out as many stars as you can from the French toast.
- Serve the French toast stars – just add a little pot of Heinz tomato ketchup for dipping.
Make school day breakfast your way
Our French toast stars are super tasty and one of our favourite fun breakfast ideas just as they are.
But you can mix things up differently – try….
- Add more fibre! – for ramping up the fibre content and choose a wholegrain or seeded bread
- Swap the dip! – serve with BBQ dip or drizzled in maple syrup
- Make gluten free eggy bread – use gluten free bread and be sure the dip is gluten free too
How to serve French bread stars
- Perfect for school day breakfast – add a glass of smoothie or fresh juice.
- I tend to add a healthy smoothie like our delicious spinach and kiwi smoothie with banana and yogurt.
Get the Spinach Smoothie recipe here. You can’t taste the spinach in this smoothie at all and so it’s a great way to get kids to eat greens!
