French toast fans, here are what you need:
- Bread (I used Gardenia's Break-thru here but I will use white next time around)
- Ham (I like salty sandwich ham and Bangsar Village Grocer has the best, Euro Deli works for me too)
- Cheese (Basic Kraft slices will do)
- Eggs (I think I worked with about 3 eggs)
- Milk (half a cup or adjust accordingly, full cream please, low fat is boooooring)
- Brown Sugar (about a teaspoon or so, just adjust)
- Oil (I use PAM Cooking Spray so it's alot less oily, avoid butter as it browns too quickly in the pan)
- A good non-stick pan (I am a big big fan of Tefal)
- Mix eggs, milk, sugar and a pinch of salt in a semi-shallow bowl.
- Butter each slice of bread and sandwich the ham and cheese in between. Make some variety, some ham+cheese, some ham and cheese on its own so you know what you'll love best. I think peanut butter would be a good idea too :P
- Slice the sandwiches anyhow you like.
- Dip the ready sliced sandwiches in the egg mixture, coat all sides, soak longer if you like it 'mushy' and wet.
- Then simply fry them gently in a flat non-stick pan coated with a thin layer of PAM. Slow to medium fire.
- Make sure you do not break up the sandwiches, they can be quite fragile, so avoid turning too often.
- Serve with coffee and juice. I guess sliced peaches on the side would be a nice touch too. Yummers.
Voila, breakfast, or brunch!
Dear hubby's verdict? He wiped the plate clean :)
