How do you like your eggs in the morning?

Well, I like mine with a kiss...but if there isn't one forthcoming then I'll settle for having them whipped into a batch of fluffy French toast.

I had a french stick going to waste in the kitchen after gorging on baked camembert and roasted garlic a couple of nights ago.  Luckily it makes perfect French toast, so I made two scrumptious dishes and had a warming sense of waste-not-want-not to boot.


Serves 2

french stick, cut on the diagonal to make 6 large slices 1.5cm thick
5 large eggs
3 tbsp milk
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ nutmeg, grated
½ tsp vanilla extract
1½ tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp butter

~for the compote:
1 cup mixed berries
2 tbsp caster sugar

1) Whisk together all the ingredients except the sugar, and soak the bread in the mixture until well saturated.  Meanwhile, heat the berries and sugar in a small pan for 5 minutes to make a compote.

2) Heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium low heat, then fry the toast in batches until golden brown on both sides. Sprinkle with the sugar, fry for a further 30 seconds on each side and serve with the compote.
