  1. Beat together the egg, milk and a generous amount of salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.

  2. Heat enough oil to just cover the bottom of a large frying pan over a medium heat. When the oil starts to shimmer, dip the bread into the egg mixture and add it to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes on each side, or until golden-brown.

  3. Serve with tomato ketchup or brown sauce.

Recipe Tips

This is even better made with leftover pieces of a French baguette.

If you're not a fan of tomato or brown sauce, then sweet chilli or Sriracha are also delicious for a spicy twist.

You could even top with a fried or poached egg for a more filling meal.
