Bread And Breakfast?

Bread And Breakfast?

They say it’s the most important meal of the day, and nothing quite beats a delicious cooked breakfast, whether that’s in a cafe, or made at home, or even brought to you in bed! We think that if you don’t have bread – toasted or fried – with your cooked breakfast, then why even bother?

As the Daily Mail reports that mad scientist-like chef Heston Blumenthal has launched a ‘Full English sandwich’ which combines baked bean-flavoured bread and ketchup that tastes like coffee, we wanted to look at a ‘simpler’ suggestion for bready breakfasts and brunches with an old favourite.





French toast

This classic is a fantastic way to use up slightly stale bread. It goes by many names: French toast, eggy bread, pain perdu, or the ‘poor knights of Windsor’. If you’ve never had French toast, it is bread soaked in a mixture of milk and eggs, then fried and often topped with something sweet.


  • One large egg
  • 300ml milk
  • One teaspoon vanilla extract or ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Four thick slices white bread
  • Two tablespoon butter
  • Toppings of your choice


Instructions for making French Toast

In a wide, shallow dish, whisk the egg, milk, and vanilla or cinnamon together, and soak the bread in the mixture, on both sides, for a couple of minutes, longer if the bread is stale. You want the bread to absorb the liquid, but no so much it is falling apart.

Melt a tablespoon of butter in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, and add two of the slices of soaked bread. Cook for approximately five minutes until golden, then flip and cook the other side, and remove from the pan Repeat for all the slices, then cut diagonally, and add your toppings!

The toppings are a personal preference, but anything from berries to maple syrup makes a perfect accompaniment. You can add cream and chocolate for a more decadent, dessert feel too.
