French Toast/Eggy Bread

Right, so at nearly eleven months we have finally dived in on the egg eventually (partly in an effort to 'bind' my poor daughter's poo back to some sort of solidity, I admit). We are big fans of French toast in this household, but only, and I mean only, made with Scottish Plain bread. If you think you've tasted white bread before, think again, for they don't some any whiter than a plain loaf, in all its doughy, burnt-crusted gorgeousness. Stupid foofy cotton wool bread tastes weird with egg, I think, so try to get the doughiest loaf you can.
Obviously you know how to make it, just crack a couple of eggs into a dish large enough for your bread, fling in the slices and then prick with a fork so that it better absorbs the egg. Once you are satisfied that the bread is suitably eggy, drop it into some warmed olice oil in a frying pan and fry it until golden-ish. Some people eat this with sugar but they are mostly American. I'm strictly savoury myself.

    And there's another meal to add to our favourites!
    Hadnt even thought of eggy bread, dont know why, she loves scrambled egg (before someone told me egg white should wait…oops) and she loves bread, so, predictably, the eggy bread went down a treat.
    Unfortunately she then started casting longing glances at my portion, so of course half of that went to her as well…

    My Baba love eggy bread, and it is so morish!!! I managed to scoff 3 slices for tea! She ate a whole slice of it. Not bad for 5 weeks in. She however was not allowed to dunk hers into ketchup. Shame.

    I love french toast (expecially with maple syrup and bacon) so I think we'll be having this for tea (supper/dinner whatever you call your meal at night – wonderhubster calls lunch dinner – so all very confusing).
