French Toast

A simple, versatile brekkie recipe that delivers big on the comfort front. I like to serve eggy bread simply with a few strawberries and a little natural yoghurt, but you can also try it with smashed avocado and grilled tomatoes, bacon and maple syrup or stewed fruit with a dollop of yoghurt.

Key Details

  • Serves: 2-4
  • Prep time: 2 minutes
  • Cook time: 5 minutes
  • Difficulty: Easy


  • 2 eggs
  • 100ml whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • generous pinch cinnamon
  • small pinch of nutmeg
  • 4 slices of bread
  • toppings of your choice

Whisk your ingredients in a bowl. Soak your bead slices in your egg mixture, saturating it on both sides.

Heat a pan on a medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil and a small knob of butter. Pop your bread into the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side until golden and crisp.

Scatter with your favourite toppings (my favourite is definitely strawberries and a glug of honey).
