Savoury French toast

Ingredients (Serves 4)

8 slices of stale white or brown bread
1 lemon
1 egg
250ml milk
100g grated mature cheese
2 dessert spoons of fresh Italian herbs, finely chopped
2 dessert spoons of chives, finely chopped
freshly ground pepper
nutmeg
50g butter


Method

Wipe the lemon thoroughly and use a grater to remove the yellow zest. Beat the egg and the milk together in a shallow bowl. Stir in half of the cheese, the grated lemon zest, the Italian herbs, and half of the chives. Add salt, pepper and a pinch of nutmeg to taste. Cut the slices of bread in half diagonally and dip them in the egg mixture one by one, making sure that both sides are coated. Then place the slices in the bowl and sprinkle with the rest of the egg mixture. Leave to soak for approximately 5-10 minutes. Heat a knob of butter in a frying pan and fry four pieces of bread for approximately 3 minutes until they are a lovely golden brown colour and the egg is set. Turn them over carefully with a pancake spatula half way through the cooking time.
Arrange the pieces of French toast on a warm plate so they overlap and keep them warm. Fry the remaining pieces of French toast in the same way. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese and chives on top. Serve warm.

Preparation time: Approximately 25 minutes.

There is not a definitive recipe for traditional French toast. It is a dish enjoyed in various European countries where it is known by different names.
