One dish that holds particular nostalgia for me is eggy bread. It is one that I remember loving as a child and still love to this day although Megan wasn’t sure of she’d ever had it. I of course had to change that. For this recipe I had made a slight adaptation on the classic and have used two slices of eggy bread to make a sandwich. I opted for cheese and sausage for the filling which I will share with you but we already have some more ideas of other fillings and adaptations we will try in the future.
Ingredients (makes two sandwiches):
- 3 eggs
- Splash of milk
- Knob of butter
- 4 slices of bread
- 2 sausages
- Handful grated cheese
- Salt and pepper
- Small sprinkle of chilli flakes
- Chop the sausages into slices. Place in frying pan with a drop of oil or Frylite and add the salt and pepper and chilli flakes.
- Beat the eggs, milk and butter together and pour into a long tray such as a pyrex dish.
- Place one slice of bread into the egg and turn ensuring all the bread is covered.
- Once the sausages are cooked, place to one side.
- Place the bread into the hot pan and keep turning the bread over until the egg is cooked. (Due to the hot pan this shouldn’t take long).
- Once cooked place to on side and repeat with a second slice.
- Once the second slice is cooked, leave in the pan, add sausages and cheese and then place the other slice of cooked eggy bread on top.
- Fry until cheese is melted.
This recipe could not be any simpler and yet is so delicious. Mix it up with other combinations of ingredients or strip it back to the classic, either way it’s going to be eggcelent!! (Breadful joke!!) (I’ll stop). I think that Meg was pleasantly surprised with how good this tasted and we think you will be too. Scrambling ahead a bit, we are both so eggcited by the ideas that we will be sharing with you over the next few weeks and we will of course by cracking a few puns along the way!! Until then though, happy lunching!
