Eggy Bread - Its gonna kill me

#1
There is no doubt about it. Eggy bread is just about the nicest thing you can throw on when you're having a big fatty breakfast. As soon as it touches my lips it transports me into the drivers cab of an Eddie Stobart truck and I imagine myself wearing the same T shirt I had on when I went to bed last night and smoking 60 a day with one arm more tanned than the other.

Lately I have found myself eating a little bit more of it than I probably should and to be honest if I'm not careful the above could become a reality. Now to drop eating it all together would be like selling my soul so;

My question is:

How can I make it that little bit healthier or bring it into evening meal form (I.E dump the Sausage and Bacon)?

At the moment I do the following:

Bread (Slice x 2, eating for the use of)
Eggs x 2 (Free range ofcourse)
Small splash of milk
Tiny sprinkles of salt
Half tea spoon of butter per slice.

Bread gets soaked in egg - Butter goes in pan. Bread follows butter. 1 minute either side. Add whatever I've decided to eat it with (Sausage, Bacon, Ham, even chicken when I've been desperate) Done!

Any ideas fellow wannabe chefs?

Cheese and Ham Eggy bread is a nice alternative


8 slices white bread with added fibre
A little butter for spreading
4 slices of ham
50g (2oz) Cheddar, sliced
5 large Lion quality eggs
salt and freshly ground black pepper
3tbsp oil for frying

1. Spread the slices of bread on one side with a little butter, then make four ham and cheese sandwiches in the normal way. Beat the eggs with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Dip two sandwiches in the egg, letting it soak in a little.
2. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, then add the sandwiches to the hot frying pan. Cook for 3 Min's until the base is golden, then carefully turn over with a spatula. Cook for a further 3 Min's or until golden on the base.
4. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Repeat to make the remaining sandwiches in the same way. Serve cut in half with a few cherry tomatoes if liked.

Spread the still-hot eggy bread, fresh from the pan, with Marmite :D

That is the taste of my childhood!

Still doesn't make it any more healthy, but adds fewer calories than bacon/sugar/maple syrup etc.

Ahh. The healthy version! Sounds like a bloody good recipe though. But I am a fan of the foaming butter rather than oil.

I was introduced to eggy bread for brekkie by a girlfriend after a night of lurv. Eggy bread followed by a tussle on the sofa.
It's the only way you are going to lose weight with it and it comes highly reccomended. 8)

My wife's family have always made a heavy batter from eggs & flour for the bread, and served it with apricot jam. Different, but nice. (Don't skimp on the quality of the jam)

i know i shall get some stick for this!

ditch the butter, soak the bread in the eg mix, use a little olive oil spray and wack it under a hot grill or in a nonstick pan with no more oil or butter!!!!

try it!! it works

I first got this at a Woodcraft Folk camp back in the sixties, one of the few dishes that can be eaten as a sweet or savoury, the French call it Pain Perdu and use stale bread, rather like we use stale bread for bread and butter pudding.
