Is it French toast or Eggy bread? Or do you have another name for bread dipped in an egg mixture and then fried? In my family we are the Eggy bread camp. French toast was far too posh for Leeds when I was growing up on the 70’s.
During my breakfast adventures recently I’ve tended to make savoury concoctions. This is rooted in our go to weekend breakfast ingredient eggs. Fried egg sandwiches are one the menu almost every Saturday morning here but when my niece stays over I usually make pancakes or eggy bread and we drizzle on the maple syrup to made these all the sweeter.
A few weeks ago I decided it was time to jazz up my usual version with some fruit. This was frozen so I defrosted it in the microwave in a slug of maple syrup. Mmm…..
The verdict? Delish. And if you cut your eggy bread into triangles it looks all the prettier!
