5 Minute French Toast
I make this recipe at least once a week when I feel like a hot lunch – even though technically it is a breakfast food. This recipe can use slightly stale (not mouldy) bread – so it is a good way to use up a loaf that has been sitting around for a day or two.
Now this recipe can be served savoury or sweet. Personally I love it with just a bit of salt and pepper on top – but most people drizzle syrup and add fruit. Totally your call.

Cut the two slices in bread diagonally (to make four triangles).
Heat a frypan on medium heat and add the teaspoon of butter until it is bubbling.
In a shallow bowl, add the egg and milk and whisk together really well.
Dunk the bread slices into the egg mixture, ensuring it is totally saturated - then turn the bread over and soak it again.
Pop straight into the bubbling butter then cook until browned on both sides.
Serve hot with syrup.
