Eggy bread

Eggy bread or French toast

French toast or eggy bread?  In my house it’s definitely eggy bread and its one of the recipes that my kids love cooking themselves.

Eggy Bread

A quick search of the internet also has this delicious snack called Bombay toast, German toast, gypsy toast, poor knights (of Windsor), or Torrija.  It actually doesn’t matter what you call it, the taste doesn’t change…it is delicious, and one of my very favourite light bite lunchtime snacks.

I can only eat this at lunchtime though, any other time just seems wrong, although my kids love it for breakfast and tea too.

Please remember that cooking with kids is an absolute joy, however the kitchen does have its share of dangers.
Children should be supervised when using the hob!
