What if French toast could be improved by the Brits?
Eggy bread, a slice of white loaf dipped in egg whisked with milk and fried in butter, is simply French toast without the sweetness. It is a food I've consumed in countless American diners, and on countless Sunday mornings as a kid. But that morning I found eggy bread unrecognizable without its sheen of maple syrup and its fragrant nutmeg and cinnamon spices. Still, there it was, plain and obvious. And it floored me. A savory French toast. (A British toast?) Something deliciously simple, seasoned with just salt and pepper.
I proceeded to make my own that morning, and then again. And it has since become a very fond breakfast of mine, ready in minutes and a little something out of the ordinary compared to normal cereal fare. For some reason, making French toast seems like a laborious affair for lazy Sunday mornings--but eggy bread is as simple as dropping an egg into a bowl, whisking it with a splash of milk, soaking the bread while the pan heats and the butter melts, and frying it until crisp . Easily completed half-asleep before heading to work.
A quick breakfast that's genuinely good is hard to find, especially a variety of ideas to keep life interesting. And so Eggy Bread has entered my repertoire. And if you're so inclined, it might be a good one for yours as well (that is, if you happen to be as ignorant of Eggy Bread as I was, which, judging from the Google results , may not be the case).
