Eggy Bread – cooking with kids 23



The aim of our cooking with kids series is to encourage the boys to try new foods, but also to build on basic cooking skills and provide them with a repertoire of usable recipes.  Eggy bread is one of those simple recipes that I know they will return to a lot (they have already made it for breakfast three days on the trot).

How to make Eggy Bread

 

Eggy Bread or french toast is a super simple recipe, that you can either have savory or sweet (just make sure to leave out the salt and pepper) and we have rather a lot of eggs at the moment as we have been blowing them out for easter.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 slices of fresh bread
  • vegetable oil

Equipment list

  • mixing bowl, we use a large wide pasta bowl that a slice of bread can fit in
  • measuring spoons
  • fork
  • frying pan
  • Fish slice
  • Serving plates

Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl.  My boys have been cracking eggs since they were 3, so are pretty competent at it by now, however, if you have younger children then crack the eggs in to a separate bowl first.

Add the milk and season with a tiny pinch of salt and pepper.

Gently whisk the eggs and milk together with a fork, before placing a slice of bread into the bowl.

Then heat the frying pan on a medium heat, before turning over the lice of bread.  Maxi found it easier to do this with a fork.

Add ½ a tablespoon of olive oil to the frying pan and carefully swirl the pan around to evenly coat the inside.

Lift the soaked bread up in the bowl and allow the excess mixture to drip off, then carefully lower it into the pan, making sure it’s facing away from you so you don’t get splashed with hot oil.

Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through, using a fish slice to flip it over.

Carefully lift the bread out of the frying pan and onto a serving plate using a fish slice or fork.

The boys really love their eggy bread with beans (we are currently loving five beans) and I figure that Eggy bread with beans is a pretty decent meal!

I guess if this sees them through collage I wont mind at all, plus I would be quite happy having this brought to be as breakfast in bed!
