Eggy bread

Eggy Bread

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we are inclined to agree - especially at the weekend! We are quite partial to a poached egg or two in the morning, but every now and again we get the urge for something slightly sweeter. Eggy bread is quick and easy to make, but is a tasty way to start the day.

To make enough for two, you will need 4 slices of white bread, 3 eggs, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, icing sugar, maple syrup and 4 slices of bacon. I usually prefer brown bread but find the white works better for eggy bread.

Beat the eggs with the ground cinnamon and then pour half of the mixture onto a dinner plate. Place a slice of bread on the plate, and press with a fork to soak the mixture into one side and then turn the slice over and repeat wth the other side. Heat a teaspoon of butter in a pan (Vitalite or vegetable oil is fine instead), and fry each side until slightly crispy. Repeat until all of the egg mixture is used up, which should make 4-5 slices.

We served ours dusted with icing sugar and with bacon (grilled or fried), then drizzled with maple syrup.
