• 4 slices wholemeal bread
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 small knob of unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 pinch of golden caster sugar (optional)


  1. 1

    Cut the bread slices in half diagonally. Crack the eggs into a shallow bowl, add the milk and beat together with a fork.

  2. 2

    Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan until foamy (but not too hot).

  3. 3

    Dip a piece of bread into the mixture making sure it is thoroughly coated and then put it straight into the pan. Repeat with the other slices. You will probably fit 3 or 4 pieces into the pan at one time.

  4. 4

    Cook for 2 to 3 minutes over a medium heat until golden and then turn over and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

  5. 5

    For a treat you can try sprinkling just a tiny pinch of cinnamon and golden caster sugar over the top.
