Ingredients

  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 2 slices white bread or brown bread
  • 1 tbsp butter

Method

  • STEP 1

    Lightly beat the egg in a shallow bowl along with the milk. Season with salt and black pepper.

  • STEP 2

    Dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture, making sure it has soaked up all of the liquid. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add the butter. Swirl the butter around the pan and when it's beginning to foam, add the bread and fry on each side for 1 min or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and serve with crispy bacon or fruit compote.
