I think French toast has to be one of the best ever recovery meals. Carbs. Check. Protein. Check. Awesome flavour. Double check!
The beauty of French toast, is that while it looks really fancy to serve it is super quick and easy. It’s also a great way to eat eggs without them being eggs!
Plus, on the #lovefoodhatewaste spectrum, it’s a perfect way to revive bread that has gone beyond stale!
While I was in Girona I had a beautiful fruit and nut bread that was so stale it couldn’t even be made to toast.
Soaking it in the egg and milk mixture totally revived it into the most amazing french toast I’ve ever eaten. No joke.
I’ll often serve French Toast with a big blog of Skyr or Greek Yoghurt for extra protein, drizzled with some honey or maple syrup and a dust of cinnamon. Maybe some nuts as well if I have any on hand.
This recipe is very fluid. Add more/less egg or milk to suit your preference. I rarely measure ingredients while making it, adapting to the number of serves I am making.
- 2-3 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- Stale bread slices
- Whisk the eggs and milk in a shallow bowl
- Soak the bread slices in the egg mixture, allowing it to soak into both sides
- Heat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat and cook the toast until it is golden.
- Flip and cook the other side until it has cooked through.
- Serve warm with Greek yoghurt, honey/maple syrup, cinnamon and fruit.
Enjoy for breakfast, brunch or after training!
