Saturday Brunch....

 Usually on a Saturday morning I have some French baguettes
leftover from making school lunches
the previous day.
 Rather than let them go to waste, I decided to make
 these french toasts for brunch
or as the kiddos might like to call it "eggy bread" !
It is actually best made with day old bread
rather than a fresh loaf...

1 thinly sliced french baguette.
2 eggs
2 tbsp of sugar
250ml of milk


Place eggs and sugar in a shallow bowl and whisk together. Add the milk and continue to whisk until blended. Place your bread slices in the bowl and let them soak up the mixture.

Heat some butter in a frying pan and fry the slices of bread for
 two minutes on each side
until golden in colour.

Serve on a plate garnished with seasonal
 fruit and a light dusting
 of icing sugar.

Hope you all have a lovely November Saturday!!
