Ingredients

1 egg
50mls whole milk (can add a splash of cream too to make it more luxurious!)
2 slices of bread
Butter for frying
Teaspoon Icing Sugar
Jam

Method

1.
Using a dish large enough to hold a slice of bread break the egg into it and add the milk (and/or cream) to it. Mix this well. Add half of the icing sugar to the mixture.
2.
Cut crusts off bread (not essential but we always think it makes it look a bit more fancy). 
3.
Using a non-stick frying pan, put a knob of butter in the pan over a medium heat. At the same time, submerge one of your slices of bread into the eggy mixture, making sure all the bread is coated. 
4.
Transfer the eggy bread carefully into the frying pan, and cook for approx. 1.5 minutes on each side, until they go golden brown. Repeat the process with the second slice.
5.
On one of the slices cut out a heart shape. On the other slice spread it with jam. Place the slice with the heart cut out on top of the jam and sprinkle with the remaining icing sugar for a snazzy look!
WORTH KNOWING!
-You can use any shapes/cutters for this - dinosaurs/butterflies and flowers have all made an appearance at our breakfasts. (Play Doh cutters carefully washed are perfect for this!)
-Don't waste the crusts you've cut off the bread - blitz them up and freeze them for breadcrumbs!
WOW! This recipe is easily adapted to be gluten free - just use your favourite GF sliced bread and jam!

This LOVE-ly French Toast is just a twist on the classic version that we've all had at some point.  You can adapt it to be more savoury based  - just omit the icing sugar and use something like peanut butter/cream cheese - anything that takes your fancy really! We make them for birthday breakfasts, Christmas - anytime we want to upgrade our breakfasts!
