Savoury French Toast

Few things in life are as easy with huge rewards as this french toast recipe. For instance, dunking baguette in a spicy, cheesy, herby egg wash is a short and quick road to a full bellied, Sunday success.

I picked up a freshly baked baguette but this also works perfectly fine if you have some stale bread that needs using desperately.

What you will need:ย 

  • A little more than half loaf of baguette (or any thick bread)
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 a medium Onion; finely chopped
  • 3 Green chillies; finely chopped
  • Finely chopped coriander
  • Italian seasoning mixed herbs
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese of your choice (I used a mild cheddar)
  • Maggie Chilli Sauce to serve with


How to cook:

  1. Slice the baguette into pieces of desired thickness and set aside.
  2. Prepare the egg dipping mixture by adding the onions, herbs, chillies, coriander, salt and pepper whisking it until fully incorporated.
  3. Add cheese and mix well.
  4. Dunk the bread in the egg mixture and thoroughly coat it ensuring that the onions ad chillies stick to the bread.
  5. Heat a pan with about 1 Tbs Olive oil and place the bread slices. Flip after about 2 mins of cooking on a medium flame and take off the heat when both sides are cooked and no egg mixture oozes out when you press down on the bread gently.
  6. Serve these up with some chilli sauce and hot cup of tea!

Happy cooking ๐Ÿ™‚
