Eggy Bread - cooking with kids

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes
Servings 2


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


  1. 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.
  2. Add the milk and season with a tiny pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Gently whisk the eggs and milk together with a fork, before placing a slice of bread into the bowl.
  4. 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.
  5. Add ½ a tablespoon of olive oil to the frying pan and carefully swirl the pan around to evenly coat the inside.
  6. 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.
  7. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through, using a fish slice to flip it over.
  8. Carefully lift the bread out of the frying pan and onto a serving plate using a fish slice or fork.
