The dilemma of figuring out what to put in the kids' lunch boxes has now turned into what to feed them while they are enjoying their short winter break.
Pancakes are great and all but there's only so much the kids could handle before they start loathing the stuff. Solution - French toast! And to make it a bit more exciting - French toast sandwich!
It's easier to cook than ye old griddle cakes but is by no means less tasty. Although the one I made for this blog is ham & cheese this should not limit you from trying other combinations be it savoury or sweet (peanut butter, nuttela & banana anyone?!?!?!?!)
Essential to my French toast is good sliced white bread. Yes, I said white! it has to be thick enough to handle being soaked in the egg mixture. The other important ingredient is butter. Yes, butter! Full fat yummy butter!
1/4 cup milk
4 slices of white bread
1. In a large bowl beat the eggs and milk together. Season with salt (if you like).
2 Prepare your ham & cheese sandwiches as per usual. Add whatever sauces/seasonings you prefer.
3 . Soak your sandwiches in the egg mixture making sure all sides are well coated.
4. Heat up a large pan using low to medium heat. Melt the butter (enough to cover the pan) and wait for it to bubble.
5. Fry your soaked ham & cheese sandwiches in the butter. You probably need 5 minutes on each side or until the cheese starts to ooze.
6. Slice your French toast sandwiches in half and serve hot for breakfast (or any time of the day!).
