A wonderfully easy and eye-catching eggy breakfast. Perfect for eating in bed!
|4||slices of white or brown bread|
|a knob of butter|
|For the fried egg:|
|1||slice of bread|
|A few slices||peach|
|a little icing sugar|
|1||tomato, halved and grilled|
You will need: a 6cm cutter and a 7cm cutter.
Use a 6cm cutter to stamp out 3-4 hearts from the 4 slices of bread (whiz the offcuts to make breadcrumbs and freeze to use another time). Beat the egg and milk together in a bowl and dip the hearts into the mixture.
Heat a little oil and butter in a frying pan. Once the butter has melted, swirl it around the pan to cover the base. Fry the hearts in batches until golden on each side, then set aside on a warm plate.
For the fried egg, cut a heart shape out of the middle of a slice of bread using a 7cm cutter and set the heart asside. Toast the bread lightly on both sides, then heat a little oil in the frying pan. Break the egg into a cup. Put the toast in the pan and slide the egg into the heart cut-out taking care not to overfill it. Cover and cook for a couple of minutes, until the white is set.
To serve, arrange the French toast on a plate with some peach slices and a dusting of icing sugar. Place the fried egg toast on another plate with the grilled tomato halves.
