Breakfast is important. Very important. Especially for young growing minds. Here is a very easy, very quick recipe which is wholesome and full of energy for yourself or a school kid to devour first thing in the morning. Just make sure your bread loaf is starting to go a little hard and stale as this is what makes it able to take on so much egg mixture. I eat this at least twice a week and when I cook it people tend to gather around the dining room waiting.
4 medium eggs , 2 Tablespoons of milk, 2 tablespoons of caster sugar, 4 thick slices of slightly stale bread with crusts removed, butter and sunflower/canola/grapeseed/rice bran oil, pinch of cinnamon, 2 crisp eating apples peeled.
Beat the eggs together with the milk and sugar then pour into a shallow dish. Add the bread slices and submerge them in the egg allowing the egg to absorb. After about 5 mins turn them over so both sides absorb the egg and are soaked through.
Whilst you are waiting for this peel and slice the apples and fry on a medium heat with a knob of butter and a dollop of oil. Cook until soft and slightly brown. When almost done add a teaspoon of soft brown sugar to make a nice apple syrup. (This is optional if you are trying to cut out sugars)
Pour into a bowl and keep warm.
Wash pan and add another knob of butter and dollop of oil.
Fry the bread on a medium heat for 2-3 minutes each side until they are golden brown and cooked through.
Pour apple mix onto bread and serve.
