Savoury French Toast

It’s a french toast kinda week. I’ve shared sweet and now savoury! Switch the pesto for chilli jam and the mushrooms for rocket/pea shoots and feta for a different mix!


Ingredients – serves one

Toast –

1 large slice of sourdough, halved

1 egg, whisked

1 tsp butter

Mushrooms –

100g mushrooms, sliced

salt and pepper

drizzle of oil

Toppings –

55g halloumi, sliced

1 tbsp pesto – I used Jamie Oliver

2 eggs


Fry the sliced halloumi in a dry non stick frying pan over a medium heat until golden on each side.

Put to one side.

Fry the mushrooms in a good pinch of salt and pepper and a drizzle of oil until soft.

Pour into a bowl.

Dip the bread in the whisked egg until soaked and coated all over.

Melt a little butter in the pan and add the soaked bread. Fry until golden on both sides.

Meanwhile poach the eggs in a pan of boiling water for minutes for runny yolks.

Stack the toast on a plate, spread with pesto and top with the fried mushrooms, halloumi and poached eggs.
