  • 2 slices bread – I like white bloomer bread but you can choose whichever bread you like – from cheap and cheerful white sliced to a wholegrain granary bread – just pick your favourite.
  • 1/2 tbs olive oil – this is for frying the bread – you can switch it for sunflower oil, butter or rapeseed oil if you prefer.

How to make eggy bread

Okay so you literally cannot go wrong when making our easy breakfast recipe – it’s super simple.

  • Crack the eggs & whisk – crack two eggs into a small bowl or cup and whisk together with a fork.
  • Coat the bread in the eggy mixture – pour the whisked eggs onto a dinner plate and press your slices of bread into the egg. Turn the bread over and coat the other side in the egg mixture too.
  • Heat the pan – heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
  • Make eggy bread – put the egg dipped bread into the hot pan and cook for around 2-3 minutes or until the bread is turning golden brown. You can just lift up a corner using a spatula or fork to check how it’s cooking.
  • Flip the bread over – turn the French toast over in the pan and cook the other side until golden brown too.
  • Serve – slide the egg covered fried bread onto a plate and serve in your favourite way – I like it with a dollop or tomato ketchup, but there’s more serving ideas below.
